Using Zoom with Virtual Camera

This isn't a question, but a heads up to anyone using Wirecast virtual camera with Zoom.

I've been tearing my hair out all morning because Zoom suddenly stopped recognizing the virtual camera output from WC with the same setup I've been using successfully for weeks.

Turns out that Zoom released an update (version 4.6.9) that disables the use of virtual cameras. It's part of a security patch intended to prevent Zoom-bombing, and it's unclear if breaking virtual camera input was intentional or not. The most reliable fix for this at present is to roll back to a previous version of Zoom.

There's a helpful Medium post about it here.

Just posting here in case anyone else is currently going insane with suddenly not being able to use Wirecast with Zoom.
