I want to feed my webcam with a "false" prerecorded image/video (as allowed camcamx soft on mac).

How to do ? Do you know a method or software? An alternative to camcamx ?

I use MacOS 10.11 Sierra on MacBook Pro 2014 Thank you for your help.

    You can't feed your webcam anything - it's not a display device. You have to send your RECIPIENT the feed you want them to see.

Open Broadcaster Software

Thanks to work by John Boiles, can use Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) and it's virtual camera feature on macOS.

OBS is free and open source.

  • This works well and allows 1-click changes between live video and pre-recorded videos.
