    in the camera/on the camera

    Hi,

    Is "I want to see you in the camera" correct? I mean to say "through the video call".

    It's not really 'correct', no, but I can imagine someone saying it quite naturally.

    For a video call, I'd use "I'd like to see you on [the] screen".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Perhaps "Can you turn on the camera/webcam? I'd like to see you."
