Dear community users,

For training purpose I have create two VMware, one which is Kali linux with metesploit and the other one is Windows XP with a webcam. Prior before upgrading kali I was able to see the webcam but now I get the following errors:

meterpreter > webcam_stream

[*] Starting...

[*] Preparing player...

[*] Opening player at: pcWKaDiR.html

[*] Streaming...

[-] webcam_start: Operation failed: 2147942431


meterpreter > webcam_snap

[*] Starting...

[*] Stopped

[-] webcam_start: Operation failed: 2147942431


The webcam on the target does work.

What does this error mean? and is there a list of known issues en solutions for it?

Can someone help me?


With kind regard,
