What is Webcam for Remote Desktop

The most convenient solution for redirecting local webcams to a remote desktop session.
Available for Windows and Linux.

How it works

The application consists of two parts: the Workstation part is to be installed on the local computer and the Server part goes to the remote side.

Webcam for Remote Desktop creates a virtual camera in your remote RDP session and you can receive the video stream directly from the local hardware webcam. What is unique about this product is that any application recognizes the virtual camera as if it were a hardware one.

Webcam for Remote Desktop provides you with video stream of high quality and low latency. It allows noiseless and stable video transmission to your remote session without any additional configuring required.

Secure and separate access


Since the video streaming is performed on a high level, webcams are isolated within each users' individual sessions. It means that only you can have access to your camera. No one but you are able to see it in the system.

Webcam auto-selecting mode

This mode allows avoiding the necessity to select a camera for redirection every time. The feature is particularly useful when you have to login to the same session from different computers.
