Does anyone know how this works? My workplace put in some "standard" backgrounds which are boring. But many coworkers still have other backgrounds, predating the clampdown. Are those stored...where?!? How can I put something interesting back there?
(And NO, I am not worried at all about getting in trouble for it, nobody cares, everyone is too busy, and I would just say "I dunno")

If you're allowed to install software: get OBS and then play with a chromakey filter. Works best if sitting in front of an even colour (e.g. greenscreen). OBS can output its stream as a virtual webcam.

But this miiiight be a bit overboard compared to what you're looking for.

Heh, I can look at those, I can be in front of a blank wall. I was thinking more along the lines that those backgrounds are stored in some folder, and if I inject one there it would work. But maybe it can't be that simple.
