I would like to make my host computer’s webcam available to my guest OS under VirtualBox. Having never shared USB devices between the two before, though, I am a bit skittish about the language in the VirtualBox user guide on USB settings:
As soon as the guest system starts using a USB device, it will appear as unavailable on the host... On a Windows host, you will need to unplug and reconnect a USB device to use it after creating a filter for it
If I were to share my host’s integrated webcam, relinquishing control to the guest OS, how would I restore control to the host since I cannot unplug the webcam?
(My host is Windows 8 and my guest is Windows 7.)
