I am using VirtualBox running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and I'm using host integrated webcam in it.

I used regedit method but it can only change the name of Webcam in Device Manager.

Virtualbox does not, to my knowledge, have any way to change this name. You have to research the VM OS's methods to change this. Maybe another registry edit?
