Default Using a video file as a live camera

Is there any way that a video file (AVI, WMV, etc.) can be played and seen by Mogulus as a camera? Uploading isn't a good solution for what we're doing, but it sure would be nice to be able to select a video file and play it as though it were a camera.

Thanks in advance for any help with this.

Question Audio From a Video File

Will any of these other programs pass the audio from the video files through as well? CamTwist doesn't.

I'll let you know what I find out. I hadn't considered that they might just pass the video only.

I've found using webcammax that patching the headphone audio thru the mic/line in works, but you'll have to monitor your studio from another computer.

Maybe there's a better way, I just haven't found it yet. (without using an external mixer)

Thank you, DOM_LIVE.
That's what I figured. Could be doable if you have 2 computers, using one for monitoring, or monitor from another output on the sound card.

Default Easy!

Play it through a WinTV card which is selectable as a Camera source. The audio source can either be your Line in or your WinTV card audio.

It's a doddle!
