Is there a native way to attach a webcam to a Virtual Desktop

Dave Thompson 1 Reputation point

Does anyone know if it is possible to attach a webcam to the virtual desktop so that I can take video calls from the VDI itself.

I found a couple of 3rd party solutions but was hoping there was a native way to support this. I also found some solutions on plug and play pass through but as Im on a Mac these are not workable.

So, is there a native way to attach my laptops web cam to my VDI so I can take calls?

    Are you saying that asking questions isn't supported or attaching webcams isn't supported? I was directed here by an Azure support agent.
