I want to use my Mac webcam in a Virtualbox guest OS (Linux Mint). The webcam is visible in the guest os. But whenever I allow Firefox - on my guest OS - to use my webcam the virtual machine crashes.

I guess this has something to do with Virtualbox not having permission for MacOS to use the webcam. The problem is, the app Virtualbox also never asks for permission so I can't set it.

Is there a way to manually give Virtualbox access to my webcam?

  • You cannot add apps manually to that list, the app must ask. if it should but isn't doing, then see apple.stackexchange.com/questions/384317/… for how to reset, otherwise you'll need to ask at Virtualbox to have the perm request added. – Tetsujin Jun 2 at 16:25
