Virtual camera driver

Providing a virtual camera driver within sauce labs. We heavily use Saucelabs for automated testing and some of our tests require to acquire local media such as the camera. What are the plans and or involvements to add support for a virtual camera driver in sauce labs? It would enable saucelabs to be used in testing webrtc application such as video streaming platforms.

    Our app uses virtual try on, and we need a face of the user (or stream of a face) for our app to work. it would be great to see this implemented in sauce labs with the amount of virtual try on apps out there it would be a great selling point for saucelabs. We could even provide you a script for a virtual camera to run a stream of a users face.

    Seems like SauceLabs simulator are useless for me without this feature as the app request camera in each test flow...
    null camera should be fine.

    It'd be super swell if there could be a default/sample video that we could enable with an option flag (and also download a copy off of your website) if implementing this feature allowing arbitrary video file uploads is too labor intensive.   For testing on top of WebRTC, we'd like to validate that we're sending/receiving webcam data properly from end-to-end.
