I'm looking for a virtual camera with the following properties:
- uses the real webcam to take the video
- replaces the background by a predefined picture or video
- does not need a green screen / chroma key
- streams the result as the video of the virtual camera
- ideally gratis, but I would even pay 40$ if it works well
There is Zoom, which can do the replacement, but only as part of the application, not as a virtual webcam:
I want a more generic solution, which would do the processing out of the application, so that this feature can be used in any application that only supports camera.
I have seen the question Fake Virtual Camera and Microphone for Windows, but it does not have the requirement of using a real webcam as input. The suggested Manycam has a similar feature, but needs a green screen to do it.
