    I have windows 10 vm installed using virtual box from Oracle on a Mac OS. The camera which is part of the Mac is not working on the VM but works from the Mac OS. Any ideas on how I can resolve this?

  • Hi,

    make sure that the "Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack" is installed(that adds support for the FaceTime HD camera), install the latest guest additions & then add the camera under Devices > Webcams > FaceTime HD-Camera

  • Can you explain more how the camera is not working, it is not clear if this is a Windows 10 issue. Is the camera seen in Windows 10 at all?

  • Hello Daniel,

    Wonderful pointer! I downloaded the extension pack and installed the same. However until I upgraded to the 5.0.16 version the devices\webcam menu was not available. After upgrade everything is okay. Thank you so very much for your help. I really appreciate it.

    Thanks,
