            Bug ID: 257624
           Summary: multimedia/obs-studio: Fails to detect v4l2loopback
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: Individual Port(s)
          Assignee: yuri_at_freebsd.org
          Reporter: fbsd-bugzilla_at_schlachter.ca
             Flags: maintainer-feedback?(yuri_at_freebsd.org)
          Assignee: yuri_at_freebsd.org

webcamd recently added support for v4l2loopback in FreeBSD
(https://github.com/hselasky/webcamd/pull/9). It is now possible to create a
v4l2loopback device:

    # webcamd -c v4l2loopback
    webcamd 74613 - - Creating /dev/video0

However, when OBS starts, it does not detect it and disables the virtual camera
plugin:

    $ obs
    ...
    warning: v4l2loopback not installed, virtual camera disabled

Expected behavior is that OBS would detect the presence of v4l2loopback (via
webcamd) and enable the virtual camera if it is present.
