Can I use a virtual background?

Right now Gather doesn't support virtual backgrounds natively, but you can use any number of virtual webcam software options to get that functionality, and then use those virtual webcams inside of Gather.

Here's a tutorial on how to do that with OBS, which is a free and open source application that we know works well with Gather on both Mac and PC.  Unfortunately, we can't provide support on third party software, but there are lots of great resources out there to help you!
