Is there anyway to make video0 point to a video file instead of an actual webcam? We're trying to hook something up using Skype that points to a prerecorded video file instead of a webcam.


Maybe this WebcamStudio software could help:


"WebcamStudio For GNU/Linux creates a virtual webcam that can mix several video sources together and can be used for live broadcasting"

  • I'll have a look at that, that could be perfect for what we need. – Nicholas Smith Mar 5 '12 at 17:17
