Description of requirements/functionality: We have an application on Windows which takes images from a webcam and enhances them. On Windows we already have a plugin which looks like a virtual webcam to the operating system and forwards the images from our application to Skype, Google Hangouts or Web browsers. No we're thinking about having someone create the same on Mac OS X instead of developing it ourselves. It would need to be very similar to the (unrelated) application iGlasses (http://www.ecamm.com/mac/iglasses/).
We need something similar as provided in this sample (https://developer.apple.com/library/content/samplecode/CoreMediaIO/Introduction/Intro.html), however simpler and without any actual hardware access. Instead, the images should be taken from a shared memory location where our existing application puts them. This approach works fine on Windows already.
Please give an estimate on how many hours this could take. We would like to do a fixed price project, but don't know exactly what we can expect.
Specific technologies required: objective-c

From your description it looks like you already have a driver to access the camera on OS X ( you mention no need for HW access), or is that a misconception?
And you give the iGlasses application as a sample of what you need, is the need all those quartz video filters also or is it the playback functionality you are after?
And last, the webcam, how is it connected? Using thunderbolt, USB, ethernet or Wireless?Jan R.22 Jun 2017
Hi, thanks for asking. Yes, we have HW access to the camera (USB) and we have the filters we need already implemented. The only part missing, what this job is about, is sending the images our software generates to video conferencing applications like Skype / Facetime.
