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 Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document. 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 the Horizon Client software available from the VMware Product Downloads Web site.
