Dear Sir/Madam,

Trying to get a Webcam working over an RDP Session, from Windows XP to Windows 2008R2. How? The title is also the situation.
You might think why i want this, well we want to test this for Skype for Business that is running on the server.
I allready tried the RemoteFX but this isn't supported by XP.


I really appreciate any help you can provide,

Marcos Santo

Hi,

Redirection of a webcam is not supported when connecting to a Server 2008 Terminal Server without using third-party software.  Below is third-party software that you may want to test and consider:
Webcam for Remote Desktop

I believe there are other third-party companies that make similar software for TS environments so I would recommend you search the Internet.

Thanks for the info! we got it working now, the only thing is that we have no sound when we start a call.

Sorry for the very late reaction.
