  • I can't create a webcam by v4l2loopback

    There a temporal workaround but it's quite old and honestly I don't know if it still works on modern systems. It's basically to use this plugin https://github.com/CatxFish/obs-v4l2sink If you manage to install it it should give you the ability to choose what of your loopback devices should be the virtual cam. Good Luck!
  • Show HN: Blur Webcam Background on Linux

    well the easiest way I can think of is just using the OBS virtual camera thing (Unsure if they released it officially on Linux, but there is a plugin for that [1]).

    Use chroma key to remove the background and add a video there, possibly on a loop.

  • Can you appear on Zoom in B&W or Sepia?

    In case the built-in filters are not sufficient or unavailable, the workaround would be to install OBS. In OBS, set up your webcam as a source, and set up a view that has all the effects that you want. Then set up a virtual webcam: if you're using Windows, using OBS Virtualcam; if you're on a Mac, using the "Start Virtual Camera" button built into OBS; and if you're on Linux, using the v4l2loopback kernel module and the obs-v4l2sink plugin. You can then configure Zoom to use this virtual webcam, which has all the extra effects that you configured.

    PS: Seems the feature is now part of OBS 26.1! I have not seen it in my version. I'll look further. Thank you for your reponse!
