* This poetic style of comment has three features: Firstly the title is
* between two lines of dashes that extend to character eighty. Three lines
* of text describing the intent that extend out characters 73, 76 and then 79

Using my Canon 70D DSLR camera as a web cam on Linux

You'll need:

  1. Video 4 Linux loopback device kernel module (v4l2loopback) - Source: (You might find builds in your distro's repos - I'm using Fedora so had to build it myself using
  2. gPhoto2 - this is what allows you to access your cameras live feed over USB - this was available in Fedora's repos.
  3. GStreamer or ffmpeg - this is what lets you stream the output from gPhoto2 into the loopback device.

It's been a little while since I set it all up so I can't remember all of the installation details, which will probably be different for your distro anyway unless you're using Fedora. Apologies if I have forgotten something as wel.
