According to the VirtualBox changelog, version 3.2.0 added support for audio input on Mac OS X hosts.
I'm currently running version 4.0.6 which is the newest version and am trying to use my Macbook Pro's built-in microphone in a Windows XP virtual machine. It doesn't seem to work, however. I tried all settings in the Windows VM, as well as the various audio settings in for the VirtualBox VM itself, to no avail.
Does anyone have experience with this, whether positive or negative?
Is there anything I could do, apart from buying an external USB sound card / USB headset as was apparently the only way to do it back in 2009? (as was suggested in this old pre-3.2.0 SuperUser question here)
