I noticed that the new version of Genymotion 3.3.x doesn't have anymore the (very useful) webcam activation feature. As I would just need that and I have no need to use more advanced features, is there a way to attach the webcam to the emulated android device maybe using adb?

Thanks a lot!

The ability to connect a webcam is now a paying feature:

New “media injection” widget, replacing the old “camera” widget. This enables you to feed images, videos and audio files as well as any detected camera to the virtual device microphone and cameras. Only available with a paying license.


  • Yup I'm aware of that but I thought that the widget was "just" a gui to simplify some "lower level" functionality which could be achieved otherwise. After all, is the "media injection widget" being available only for a payment, it doesn't exclude that I could be able to let the emulated device see the camera otherwise? Or am I wrong on that? (I'm a bit reluctant to pay because I wouldn't need the whole functionality but just the old camera redirection)

  • @rubiker The text clearly states that feeding vide stream into Genymotion is now a paying feature. If the functionality would still be available using a workaround in the free license I assume this would be a bug that would be fixed soon by Genymotion.
