Notes on using an Android phone as a Webcam on Linux

Add the following text:

options v4l2loopback_dc width=1280 height=720

Most video call services are limited to 720p, and streami

Either your device works in your interests and your interests alone or it is not your device.

Anyone who buys into the โ€œyou donโ€™t need to own anything, you can just rent everythingโ€ bullshit should come to Ireland and try renting a house sometime. I promise youโ€™ll sober up real quick.

Who do you think perpetuates that bullshit? Thatโ€™s right, the assholes who own everything and do all the renting out.

It's Monday, It's the 20th, this means nothing but everything! Carpe Diem and stuff

So fedi doesn't approve of the new iPhone ๐Ÿ˜‚ can't say I'm surprised though

Australian police can now hack your device, collect or delete your data, take over your social media accounts. We must all fight for our right to privacy!
