Use screen as camera

Okey, is there any way I could use my screen in the same way as the webcam? Not screen sharing, but as a webcam in video chat? Thanks!

No, this is not possible. For this you need a webcam.

That utility won't allow a standard computer montitor to be used as a webcam.

Select desktop as a video source, then enable the 'Video Output' feature. Voila.
