I see in the FAQs Telestream Wirecast can be used to use with Skype
But $1000 is a bit steep for me just to do fun Skype calls
Anyone have any other ways to set your characters as an virtual camera?
A few people have tried manycam (I have not yet). It’s free!
Maybe you can use OBS Studio with Skype. OBS is a free open source app -- easy to use and quite versatile. I just started using it for recording, but haven't gotten to streaming yet.There is some discussion here https://obsproject.com/forum/resources/obs-virtualcam.539/ about Skype, and a search turns up lots more.
