v4l2loopback is a module, that allows you to create "virtual video devices". normal (v4l2-capable) applications will read these devices as if they were ordinary video devices, but the video will not be read from e.g. a capture card but instead it is generated by another application.

Yeah!  I need this very functionality.  Awesome!

my original idea was to maintain this kernel-module in the
pkg-multimedia collective.
however, on IRC reinhard told me, that it would probably be a better idea to keep it out of pkg-multimedia.
Therefore i used collab-maint for the git repository:

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
(and/or even better, become a permanent sponsor)

I don't do sponsorship.  How about teaming up instead?

@Reinhard: Why do you feel this is unsuitable for the Multimedia team?

@jonas: yes it uses cdbs :-) however, i would have loved it if cdbs had
more support for kernel-modules; there seems to be a project by frederic
briere to add this (http://git.fbriere.net/cdbs-kernel-module.git/) but
apparantly it's still not in upstream...

...and I would love to improve CDBS in this exact area - just needed a good candidate package to gain knowledge in this area. :-)
