Enable webcam in your Windows 11 VirtualBox VM


Recommended Posts

I found this topic while looking around to see if I could get Windows Hello working in the VM https://scribles.net/using-webcam-in-virtualbox-guest-os-on-windows-host/ it is not possible.


At the very least you can get the webcam working but it will not register for Windows Hello face recognition.


One thing I came across is that after you install the Extensions, you will need to reboot the guest OS if it is already running, only then can the webcam be added.

Thia is typical when USB passthrough is enabled - Oracle VirtualBox has the same feature (and limitation).
