Thanks! Can you confirm you're running OBS version > 26? I just did a new install on Ubuntu snap 20.10, v4l2loopback-dkms, on a different machine and I can't find it. If you're running version 26, that would give me a lot of info.
UPDATE: I was able to see my webcam works with cheese but I still can't see anything in OBS StudioHi.
I am super new to Ubuntu. I run a YouTube channel and I can't use my regular things I use for making videos. OBS seems to be the best option along with Shortcut which I plan to use.
I have no idea how to use this stuff. I have been searching all over and can't find a fix. My problem isn't that I can't select V4L2 but that I have no picture at all even when I have it selected. I tried recording, but I still get no picture and don't know where to find my video recordings so I can't check with another program to see if my recording works or not. I think my audio works fine, but it's a little low. So if someone knows how I can actually view what I am recording and also how to turn my mic up that would be awesome.
My webcam is: PC Webcam for Streaming HD 1080P, Vitade 960A USB Pro Computer Web Camera Video Cam for Mac Windows Laptop Conferencing Gaming with Microphone & Ring Light
My mic is: USB Microphone Kit 192KHZ/24BIT MAONO AU-A04T PC Condenser Podcast Streaming Cardioid Mic Plug & Play for Computer, YouTube, Gaming Recording
Thanks to anyone willing to help a complete newb out.
Hi, I think just recently I found "MJPEG" as a native pixel format option (in addition to the previous alternatives of YUV/YVU/BGR3 (emulated) that are still present) for some V4L2 capture devices. A pleasant surprise, but I have not been able to find anything in the release announcements that would suggest when or where this has been added. Anybody has a suggestion when this might have happened? Or is this a consequence of kernel updates or library changes or possibly some other change unrelated to OBS?

linux-v4l2: Support for Motion-JPEG codec
I got the DroidCam app working online only on my Zorin Pro16/Ubuntu PC. But it is not showing up in OBS as a device choice, just the DeskCam as always. Any suggestions....???Thank you for the report, as you already noticed there is currently no option for choosing the input. I'll try to implement support for that in the future.
$ v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video3 --list-formats-ext
Type: Video Capture
: 'YUYV' (YUYV 4:2:2)
Size: Discrete 1920x1080
Interval: Discrete 0.033s (29.970 fps)
$ ffplay -pixel_format yuyv422 /dev/video3
[VIDEO WINDOW POPS UP WITH WORKING CAMERA CAPTURE]
Replying to myself: After trying just about everything, I found a random post that suggested starting OBS from the command line. I'd been launching it from a desktop dock.Hi! I'm trying to get an Elgato 1080p usb capture card working in OBS. I have the card, a Panny GH4 camera, and hdmi cable. Running OBS 30.0.on Ubuntu 23.10 OS, Kernel 6.5. There's Pipewire installed, which when I run helvum shows the capture device. And when I run v42l-cttl, it shows the camera recognized.
Further, if I run ffplay, I get video!
This tells me the hardware and OS Kernel does work. So something further up the stack to OBS is b0rked. And I should add, the v4l2 module does not work at all. It recognizes that there's a CAMLINK present, but won't show any video.
