I am using Windows 8 on VMware Player and trying to get the Web camera working.

Ensured to enable the USB control and connecting device to VM instead of host.

However built in "Camera" says "There is problem with camera".

Did anyone faced this issue? or How to debug this issue?


Confirm that VMware can access your webcam, by setting up a simple Ubuntu VM and testing the webcam from there.

If the Ubuntu VM can access the webcam, but not the Windows 8 VM, then open Device Manager and try using a generic webcam driver.
