Using Apple iSight and other web cams in Parallels Desktop 7 virtual machines

  • Cross-Platform Applications


Apple iSight and most all other cameras you have working on Mac OS X are now shared with Windows virtual machines.

They should be available and work fine in Windows without any additional settings.

NOTE: If you prefer to keep your cameras separate between Mac OS and Windows virtual machine, please go to Virtual Machine --> Configure --> Hardware --> USB Devices and remove a checkmark from webcams sharing:
