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: http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/v4l2loopback.git;a=summary 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. :-)
