With the Real-Time Audio-Video feature, if multiple webcams or microphones are connected to the local client system, only one of the devices is used in the remote desktop or published application. To specify which webcam or microphone is preferred, you must configure Real-Time Audio-Video settings in Horizon Client.

If it is available, the preferred webcam or microphone is used in the remote desktop or published application. If the preferred webcam or microphone is not available, another webcam or microphone is used.

Prerequisites

Verify that a USB webcam or USB microphone, or other type of microphone, is installed and operational on the client system.

Procedure

  1. Tap the Option menu in the upper-left corner of the Horizon Client menu bar.
  2. Expand the Protocol section and select VMware Blast.
    The Real-Time Audio-Video settings are not visible unless you select the VMware Blast protocol.
  3. To select a preferred webcam, select a webcam from the Preferred webcam drop-down menu.
  4. To select a preferred microphone, select a microphone from the Preferred microphone drop-down menu.

Results

The next time you start a remote desktop or published application, the preferred webcam or microphone that you selected is redirected to the remote session.
