Rubens: Snapchat filter in Video chats use

Snapcamera (Download) fresh wind in Eure Videoconferencing. With help for Windows and macOS, the desktop software can also use the Snapchat filter to filter your Webcam image.

The function guide is one of the following: The snap camera captures the signal of your webcam and offers a virtual webcam, which is still available in the video conferencing tool Eurasia. And you can still learn with beauty beauty filters, haircuts and anime looks.

Kleiner Hinweis: After the start of the snap camera, you have to use your video conferencing tool to use your browser, start browsing, and the virtual webcam will be open. Ben: Bringt Euch selbst einen Kaffee!

Surely your own, later your background image at Google Meet, Zoom & Co. change knowledge. At Google Meet, the news also comes with videos and is still possible after a new scrapbook. Bringt Euch is also a good way to get some coffee at the workplace.

Then film your position in this video, but don’t watch it. Wait for a few minutes or seconds and come to a close with a cup of coffee in the picture.

The effect works well, the Eure Camera has a very wide view and your table is still there. Go to the top of the piece and put together a picture or run as complete as possible on the background. This video is updated, your uploads are added. The rest of the first colleagues * also have a great deal of knowledge. For my test I have Google Meet. Chosen here from the video as a background image for Euren Call from. Yes, we know that I am still under Windows in the selection of the background image of all file formats. The video is not accepted as standard.

You can watch your video, start directly. So it is best to be the first to call, so that possible differences in exposure are not visible. Concluding the meeting I look forward to the coffee and the reaction of your colleagues.

Another tip: actually place a coffee at the edge of the screen and then simply take a sip with relish after your second self has brought the coffee. There are also many other ideas that you can enjoy. Load your creativity free run!

Stefan: Virtual Camera Input for Meet & Co.

Follow the same principle as Snapcamera in your live streaming program as OBS (free) or Wireless as picture . These tools are available using the Eure Webcam and the Video Conferencing Tool, but can also be used as a “pacifier” effect.

Material or play online streams, text over video footage, split screen design together or various image effects. I can know my friends and family when I play games

The principle is simple: First you put together a scene from different image and sound sources (1), then you start the virtual camera (2). / © NextPit

If you have put together a scene from different image and sound sources, you are done. Both OBS also has a wireless button in the interface, with which the virtual camera is activated. You can also select this option later in your video conferencing software. Play in the OBS and watch the region and watch the video call – or of course also stream on YouTube, Twitch & Co.

Rubens: Together Mode brings the team into one room

This type works for all users of Microsoft Teams. In addition to the various conference rooms in your own box, you can also access the video chats in a common room. The selected Oberkörper der Teilnehmer is here to be in a classroom, a bar or a theater.

So that the virtual lecture halls are not as sadly empty as the universities in recent months, Microsoft limits the feature to video calls with at least five participants – and if you use a corporate admin, you have to activate the feature first. Did you meet all requirements? Then click right on the picture on the three points and activate the “Together Mode”. .

The best games for video conferencing

Ben: Plays a Gartic Phone, but it’s huge

This guy is very eager to get to the single financial meetings and more for private (or for virtual after-work with colleagues). Here is the game “Gartic Phone” a unique type. Dabei handles a modern version of Montagsmaler, which with its own four-person play is a must.

The results are accordingly poor – and the level of difficulty is high. Because based on this drawing, your teammates have to guess the original term. Closing will be used again and again. Then the round on the end.

The crowning conclusion is natural, but all views and descriptions are included in the videos. Then, in the call, sit down and learn about the great songs and absurdities to enjoy, make a real difference!

The online television station Rocketbeans.tv has a Gartic Phone available in its own format. So if you want to see how the game works, I have included the video above for you. Have fun guessing!

Stefan: It doesn’t always have to be a video chat

Of course, it’s always nice to see friends and family on the display. But if you’ve been staring at each other on the screen for months, then you’re welcome to go without a picture. At the same time, the type of Gartic Phone can also be used by others: You can do it together. / p>
