La camara virtual no se activa / Virtual Cam doesn't activate (Ubuntu 20.04)

Hace rato instale v4l2loopback-dkms porque segun solo eso era necesario para que se me pusiera la opcion de la camara virtual en esta versión. Lo hice y todo pero al momento de querer activarla me aparece esto y no se activa.
A few hours ago I installed v4l2loopback-dkms in order to add the Virtual cam option to obs. But when I try to activate the virtual cam it doesn't actually activate.

I don't know what am I supposed to do with modprobe v4l2loopback devices=1 video_nr=10 card_label="OBS Cam" exclusive_caps=1
It seems I have to load the v4l2loopback module, but I don't know how


It's says operation not permitted, hence you must run it under sudo

I too had problems with installation (Ubuntu 18.04) , in my case it was:
Module v4l2loopback not found in directory /lib/modules/4.15.0-135-generic
Solution which solved that:
sudo apt-get install linux-generic
If nothing I've suggested works, then it would better if you fill a bug report in OBS Studio or v4l2loopback, provide as much information as possible.
