With the Real-Time Audio-Video feature, you can use your local computer's webcam or microphone on your remote desktop. Real-Time Audio-Video is compatible with standard conferencing applications and browser-based video applications, and supports standard webcams, audio USB devices, and analog audio input.

For information about setting up the Real-Time Audio-Video feature and configuring the frame rate and image resolution in a remote desktop, see the VMware Horizon View Feature Pack Installation and Administration document (for View 5.3.x desktops) or the Setting Up Desktop and Application Pools in View document (for Horizon 6.0 with View and later desktops). For information about configuring these settings on client systems, see the VMware knowledge base article Setting Frame Rates and Resolution for Real-Time Audio-Video on Horizon View Clients, at http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2053644.

To download a test application that verifies the correct installation and operation of the Real-Time Audio-Video functionality, go to http://labs.vmware.com/flings/real-time-audio-video-test-application. This test application is available as a VMware fling, and therefore no technical support is available for it.

Note:

This feature is available only with the version of Horizon Client for Linux provided by third-party vendors or with Horizon Client 3.2 or a later release that is available from the VMware Product Downloads Web site.
