    Alter/emulate camera feed

    Sorry I don't know the terminology but when you use any video sharing tech, you are asked which camera source. If you want to apply affects or a watermark or song lyrics overlaid, how is that done? Some music software I use lets you broadcast that sort of thing but is there a way you can turn any video-stream into a virtual camera?

    I can see how software can easily do live effects/overlays on a camera feed, but how how can the result be then piped out as if it was the camera feed? I guess you even see it on Skype etc when they let you put cat-ears on your face etc.

    Curious as to the tech, and any easy software one might use to do this out of the box.


    As it happens there is a thread on General but I didn't want to derail it with technical crap: https://www.contractoruk.com/forums/...st2762610.html

    So for audio it seems "virtual cable" is a search term, tools like AudioHijack.

    For video, "virtual webcam" appears to be what I want. Let me stream any content and other applications will detect a camera delivering this stream.
    Is this what Open Broadcaster Software | OBS is all about? I see people use it for live music/church streams quite a bit.
