Vimc is a virtual media controller with the ability to emulate a real media device. Testing applications that involve media devices can be tricky if you don't have the hardware that you are testing. This is very common when your application needs to suit many devices, or if the hardware isn't ready yet. Vimc solves both these situations, while also allowing the implementation of CIs to check if applications are behaving as expected. The speaker will show the current state of Vimc features and the future roadmap, along with a quick look at some other virtual devices in linux-media.
