Fake Webcam in Ubuntu / Linux
In windows, there are various program that can stream video loopback and act as a camera or webcam. In Linux previously you can use AVLD and Vloopback, but I’m having trouble compiling them using kernel 2.6.31 on Karmic (Ubuntu 9.10). But luckily, I’ve found this great tool which is much better then the previous, it’s called WebCamStudio .
Here’s an excerpt from sourceforge.net info.
“WebcamStudio helps you create a virtual webcam that can show: – Your webcam that won’t work with Flash site – Your desktop with your webcam in overlay – Your desktop/webcam with several video effects – You in all your glory! Compatible with Flash sites!”
It’s easy to use and very user-friendly.
