Hi, I’m really interested in doing this so there are multiple virtual webcams which can be streamed out using multiple running copies of quicktime broadcaster.

So we’d use QC as a matrix mixer with 5 outputs feeding 5 syphon servers. Then 5 copies of QT broadcaster would encode to h264 and stream to Wowza to broadcast each stream.

CamTwist will only emulate one camera, even if you launch multiple versions simultaneous. So it would be cool to be able to from Syphon straight to a virtual cam.

Where would one look for documentation do start that?? I’ve read about VDIG, core media IO, and IOKitVideo stuff, but I’ve never tried this before so I’m sort of at a loss to try and figure out where to start.

Any ideas or worlds of wisdom would be awesome. Thanks!!
