I am trying to run this app on chrome which requires permission to access Microphone and Video. I am facing couple issues here:

  1. Its not asking for permissions.. by default it disallows. I tried to change settings but still does not work. If I manually allow then it does not remember preference next time I reload the page. Basically its not working in any case.

  2. No drivers or devices are shown in permission pop up.

I had a similar problem when i was trying to run cisco webex on a vm. My issue was that the application could only be run on a 64 bit browser while i was running the 32-bit VM.

In your case, you can check whether the resources are even available to the VM or not. It can be the issues because of the hypervisor you are using.

The other problem can be that version compatibility, that was in my case.
