I tried to upgrade, but it didn't work, so I changed kernel to 4.19 and upgrade also didn't work, then uninstalled and tried to install new version, and didnt work. Seems that when installing the kernel, that this module was not installed clean.

@fraunos, the only relevant change since 0.12.3 is, and the install methos between -git and here is the same.

Fails to install into 5.6.0-1 kernel, had to use v4l2loopback-dkms-git package

It is fixed with version 0.12.3, but the version isn't available yet (because no git tag/github release)

As Friz64 said, the *-git package loads on the latest kernel.

v4l2loopback has been broken since kernel 5.4+, there is currently a fix on github (, we will just have to wait until it's merged

@sleeping did you recently upgrade your kernel modules and didn't reboot after? Then try to reboot.

kernel 5.0 deprecates do_gettimeofday, which breaks v0.11.0. v0.12.1 is needed to be compatible with 5.0.

This really needs a quick version bump to 0.12.1. New md5 is 96b1565e18cd0c573e494d2b37eb9385.
