i want to use my microphone over Horizon Client to make Skye or other communications. Unfortunately it´s not possible to get a microphone.
Horizon Client connection is over Microsoft RDP.
The ear-phones are working perfect, but not the microphone. How can i connect this? Is there any way? There is no option to choose any microphone equal if i activate USB redirection or not.
Version VMWare Horizon Client: 4.10.0 build-11021086
Thanks a lot
I've checked internally in VMware. It turns out that RTAV, which aims to support microphone(and webcam) in Horizon, is supported with BLast or PCoIP, but not RDP. Recommend you to check with your administrator on granting you to use Blast and/or PCoIP.
Is the GPO enabled for RDP Audio recording redirection?
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Device and Resource Redirection
Allow audio recording redirection = Enabled
This policy setting allows you to specify whether users can record audio to the remote computer in a Remote Desktop Services session.
Users can specify whether to record audio to the remote computer by configuring the remote audio settings on the Local Resources tab in Remote Desktop Connection (RDC). Users can record audio by using an audio input device on the local computer, such as a built-in microphone.
By default, audio recording redirection is not allowed when connecting to a computer running Windows Server 2008 R2. Audio recording redirection is allowed by default when connecting to a computer running at least Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2.
If you enable this policy setting, audio recording redirection is allowed.
If you disable this policy setting, audio recording redirection is not allowed, even if audio recording redirection is specified in RDC.
If you do not configure this policy setting, Audio recording redirection is not specified at the Group Policy level.
As Jamit2006 suggested maybe you can try that for RDP.
That said I'm not sure about the license limitation on using Blast or PCoIP. If you're using Horizon both are built-in protocols, and microphone support is a basic feature and would not cost you any extra licesne.
