Our company wants to install WVD, and we are doing some test of it, we found we can’t use Teams microphone and video when we have a meeting.

We want to use the Teams microphone and video as we usually used at the client PC.

We think to have a meeting through Teams with Microphone and video is very important, so we hope the WVD team can update this issue quickly.

Thanks

@null null, if your devices aren't redirecting at all (Teams has no microphone or camera device available), please check and see whether you're setting the right camera and audio redirection properties: Supported Remote Desktop Properties .

 

We are making improvements to the Teams on WVD experience that will optimize audio and video streaming. These improvements will be documented when released. 

@Neil_HinnantThanks for your comment, I will check the setting of camera and audio redirection properties. And we hope u team can making improvements audio and video streaming to the Teams on WVD experience. Thanks so much.

And I got some information from @Bill Bliss , please have a check.

We only plan to support remote audio/video scenarios over VDI (Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure) solutions such as Citrix, VMware, and the forthcoming Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop in Azure. We don't plan to support it over Windows Virtual Desktop. The RDP protocol wasn't really designed for this type of use case. Here's more information on Teams VDI support, although it's not a general purpose solution: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-for-vdi

@Neil_Hinnant 

I changed my RPD setting and now the audio can be used at Teams on WVD (it wasn't support at Html and ipad yet), but I don't know how to setting the camera, can you test it at your environment. Thanks so much.  

audiocapturemode:i:valueIndicates whether audio input/output redirection is enabled.- 0: Disable audio capture from the local device
- 1: Enable audio capture from the local device and redirection to an audio application in the remote session

@Gousia_Begum  @Bill Bliss 

@Neil_Hinnant

Is there some updates about Teams video streaming?

Now I can use the audio phone on WVD Teams and the camera could be used at WVD, but the Vedio phone on WVD Teams not available yet.

Thanks

@null null, are you setting the camera property on your RDP connection: 

camerastoredirect:s:value Configures which cameras to redirect. This setting uses a semicolon-delimited list of KSCATEGORY_VIDEO_CAMERA interfaces of cameras enabled for redirection. - * : Redirect all cameras
- One can exclude a specific camera by prepending the symbolic link string with "-", such as camerastoredirect:s:\?\usb#vid_0bda&pid_58b0&mi

 

This should enable camera redirection and enable Teams to capture video, unless you have applied configurations to your Teams deployment that disable video calling in the app itself.
