OF app video output as video input device

First of all, thanks. OpenFrameworks is great. It has made my life a lot easier.

I would like to use my openframeworks apps to be treated as a video input device, somehing like a “fake camera”, so I can have that as video for videoconference software like Skype or iChat.

I’m running OSX and/or Linux. Is there any known application or driver that can do this?

Maybe treat it like a V4L2 device /dev/videoX in linux…

anybody?

There’s this:
http://v4l2vd.sourceforge.net/

Looks like it doesn’t run with the absolute latest kernels though, check the forums for more info.

Nice, this does at least half of the job, but instead it has given me new ideas…

I might use graphics produced from my app to a file as streaming video input…

thanks for your answer…

reading some Drivers and Kernel Extension developing for OSX now…

wish me luck…

Check out camtwist… it has a obj-c plugin… Havent tried it

Thanks halfdanj, now we’re talking…

that’ll work.

If you manage to get it to work with OF, please release it as a addon :slight_smile: Would be nice in many situations!

just found this:

in linux it should be pretty easy to integrate with ofGstUtils
