Chicony HP Truvision Webcam not working on Ubuntu Virtual Machine


i'm beginning my experiece in virtualisation.

I have HP Laptop 15-ay011nl with Chicony Truevision Webcam

1) Host OS: Windows 10 updated (Webcam works fine with HP drivers)

3) VMWare Workstation Player 15.5.2 (with updates)

2) Guest OS: Ubuntu 20.04 updated with open VMTools

Webcam on Ubuntu doesn't work

It appears on VM Workstation menu among removable devices to connect but when I try to connect the device, driver error appears on guest machine.

Tried also with original VmTools 10.3 (automatically mounted by VM Ware Workstation) but it doesn't work the same.

Tried also with all type of USB device (1.1, 2.0, 3.0) on VM settings. No way.

Anyone can help me?

Maybe this version of ubuntu don't work with your webcam.

Can you try your webcam on another device that has another ubuntu version ?
