If a Horizon administrator has configured the Real-Time Audio-Video feature, and if you use the VMware Blast display protocol or the PCoIP display protocol, you can use a webcam that is built in or connected to the local client computer in a remote desktop or published application. You can use the webcam in conferencing applications such as Skype, Webex, or Google Hangouts.

During the setup of an application such as Skype, Webex, or Google Hangouts on a remote desktop, you can select input and output devices from menus in the application. For virtual desktops, you can select VMware Virtual Microphone and VMware Virtual Webcam. For published desktops and applications, you can select Remote Audio Device and VMware Virtual Webcam.

For many applications, you do not need to select an input device.

When the local client computer uses the webcam, the remote session cannot use it at the same time. Also, when the remote session uses the webcam, the local client computer cannot use it at the same time.

If more than one webcam is connected to the local client computer, you can configure a preferred webcam to use in remote sessions.
