@Nikitha-MSFT Suppose I have my own video source from a camera that is not a standard webcam. For example, it can be a network camera or a proprietary camera over which I have 100% control. I would like Teams to use that video source. Does Teams allow a third-party to add a video source directly somehow?

@Nikitha-MSFT Thank you for the information. Accessing local devices is probably not an issue, but you really pointed me to the right place.
It looks like providing a video source for Teams to use as something equivalent to a webcam is not possible or very difficult. I will look at different types of Teams apps (Tabs, bots, messaging extensions, webhooks...) to see if a video can be presented. If you have any recommendations regarding which type I should look at, please let me know.

@Nikitha-MSFT Thank you. I watched the video.
A Teams Tab looks like the right place for video. It supports Microsoft Stream, but Tab seems to require the content to be web-based - Tabs are Teams-aware webpages embedded in Microsoft Teams.
