video loopback device
I'm looking for an application/driver which let to create a
virtual device where to send the video output of an application or of
another video device.
Typical application would be for example to capture from a webcam,
apply some filter to it, and finally pulish it to another application
reading from a video device.
I see there are at least three distinct projects which provides a
video for loopback device:
* video4linux loopback device/vloopback:
Seems to be unmaintained, also if I'm not wrong it only supports
video4linux and not video4linux 2 API.
* video4linux2 virtual device
This should be the successor of vloopback, unfortunately it seem not
to work with linux 2.6.26:
and also seems a little unmaintained.
I don't know if there are applications using it, just read about it
in this ML.
I wonder if someone can express an opinion on these projects, for
example to tell their current status / usability.
