Access webcam on client side via Terminal Service

My company runs most systems from a server that users access from their local machines via Terminal Service.

I'm trying to develop a solution that will integrate a webcam to one of these systems. It's working fine on the developing machine, or any machine running it directly. However, when we've hit a problem when trying to run it through the Terminal Service, because we don't know how to access webcams attached to the client machine.

It seems FilterInfoCollection(FilterCategory.VideoInputDevice) will look for devices installed on the server machine (if any), but not on the local machine, which is what we need. I've been trying to look around for a solution to this, to no avail.

Could someone please point me in the right direction?
