Edit Windows Virtual Desktop Properties in the Azure Portal
In one of our most popular blog posts on Device Advice, we go over how to Enable Audio and Video Redirection for Windows Virtual Desktop by using PowerShell to change the properties. Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) now makes this even easier – because there’s a pane in Azure to change the properties!
Start by opening the Windows Virtual Desktop pane in the Azure Portal: https://portal.azure.com/#blade/Microsoft_Azure_WVD/WvdManagerMenuBlade/overview
Select Host Pools > Your host pool > Properties > and RDP Properties:
For Audio & Video redirection, we’ll need the following properties:
audiocapturemode:i:1enables audio capture from the local device and redirects audio applications in the remote session.
audiomode:i:0plays audio on the local computer.
camerastoredirect:s:*redirects all cameras.
But just like before, you can add in any of the supported RDP settings from this Microsoft Docs page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/clients/rdp-files
Once you click save – that’s all! Much easier than before with the same result. Just remember that this requires the WVD Desktop Client, because it’s not supported over HTML5. Happy video chatting! 📹
