Comment on iShowU

Hey guys, I hope you can help me out. I'm looking for a program that will allow me to turn my desktop (all or just a portion of it) into a virtual camera driver that I can use in a video conferencing software. In this case, I would be able to choose an available "virtual webcam" other than my built-in iSight and it would stream my desktop or a window of interest.

I'm sure that there will be issues regarding limitations from the conferencing software itself in terms of frame rate and supported resolution, but we are looking into an open-source solution that may allow us to reduce the frame-rate and increase resolution.

I've done a lot of looking around for a solution to this, but no dice. I have a copy of Snapz Pro X that came with Macheist, but I don't think it can do this. Perhaps iShowU could do the trick?

Any advice would be much appreciated and if I happen to find an answer to this I will be sure o post back and give you a heads-up.
