Webcam over RDP

Thinstuff Support

To redirect your webcam from a client computer to XP/VS server, follow the steps below. Sometimes local microphone and video access is disabled by default due to security reasons. In this case, you need to manually enable audio and video playback on your XP/VS Server instance via group policies.

  1. Open your  Remote Desktop app (recommended) on Linux, macOS and Windows that needs to redirect a webcam through remote desktop.

  2. Type in the IP address or hostname of your remote computer and your login details.

  3. Now switch to the “Local Resources” tab and click on "More".

  4. Tick the checkbox before Cameras and confirm with “Ok”, then click “Connect” to establish the connection to XP/VS Server.
