With the Real-Time Audio-Video feature, you can use the local client system's webcam or microphone in a remote desktop or published application. Real-Time Audio-Video is compatible with standard conferencing applications and browser-based video applications. It supports standard webcams, audio USB devices, and analog audio input.

Note: This feature is available only with the version of Horizon Client for Linux provided by third-party vendors or with the Horizon Client software available from the VMware Product Downloads website.
To use hardware accelerate for Linux, open the /etc/vmware/config file and set the parameter values as follows:
  • rtav.forceNV="true" to enable Nvidia hardware acceleration
  • rtav.forceQSV="true" to enable Intel Quick Sync Video hardware acceleration

Real Time Audio Video hardware acceleration works on your client only if the Graphics processing unit is supported on your computer and is compatible with FFmpeg.
