Solved!

Can I use my All in One's built in webcam while using the AIO as an external monitor via HDMI in?

HP Recommended
Pavilion All-In-One - 24-R114
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I own a HP Pavilion All-in-One - 24-r114 that I currently use as an external monitor for my work laptop, which is connected via the all in one's HDMI in port. My laptop is a HP  Elitebook x360 1030 G3 and it's running through an HP Thunderbolt docking station.

 

I'm wondering if there's a way to access and use the All-in-One's built in webcam for Teams and Zoom meetings that I'm running on my work laptop, instead of using the Laptop's built in webcam (the laptop is set up off to the side of the main monitor and I would prefer to use the straight on view from the All-in-One's camera for meetings).

 

Unfortunately, when using the All in One as a monitor via the HDMI in port, it's built in webcam is not showing up as an option within the device menus on the meeting platform or as a camera device in the Device Manager list. Strangely enough, I can use the AIO's speakers as an audio input/output when connected via HDMI in, but I cannot find the camera driver.

 

Is the webcam driver even accessible when using the All-in-One as a monitor via HDMI? Thank you for any help with this.

Hello
I say maybe a mistake, but with an HDMI cable, indeed, as you noticed it, one can have not only the image, but also the audio.
having said that, I was not sure if it worked with this type of product / connection!
But you cannot have access to all devices including the webcam
If not the choice, I would advise you to buy a webcam, connected by usb to the laptop, that you can place where you prefer!
