I have a weird idea for a feature request.
I have a USB 4k USB-C capture card that I use for capturing footage off the Windows 10 VM, it’s also handy for making sure the nVidia card thinks there’s a monitor attached.
When I need to install updates or changing something in safemode (when the looking glass service isn’t running) I find myself using lookingglass to capture my mouse and keyboard while using cheese or OBS as a monitor for the VM.
I was wondering if it would be possible for you or someone else to add a feature to the looking glass client to use the video from my capturecard directly as a failover for when the VM is still booting or when the service has failed to launch.
I’ve had this idea for a while now, but I wanted to wait till looking glass was at a somewhat stable state before I started asking for some weird feature that most people wouldn’t even use. I know latency would be huge with a usb capture device, but it’s good enough for just changing some settings to getting the VM running again.
