I want to use the output of ASUS sensor for video chatting . I am using openni_ros to get the images. Is there a way to publish the camera/rgb/image_raw topic to a virtual video device made by v4l2loopback module in this link .

I think virtual_camera can do what you want:

This is a package that can send a ROS image message to a v4l2loopback device. Tested on Fuerte.

I have not used this myself.


mayfieldrobotics/ros-virtual-cam seems to be a continuation / evolution of the virtual_camera package.
