Details

In the task inspector command we have a command on how to run the job locally, however, it needs some documentation to add --device=/dev/video1:/dev/video1

It also requires running these two commands first:
sudo apt-get install v4l2loopback-dkms
# This should create one more device under /dev/video*
sudo modprobe v4l2loopback 

Somebody mentioned that vagrant could help here.
Thanks for entering a bug for this.  I planned on looking at tools soon for other reasons and can check this out as well.

I will be discussing briefly in Orlando using a local vagrant environment that mimics our worker environment.  This way one does not need to install kernel modules or anything.  The downside is that it all runs in a VM but at least it's isolated and can be changed independent of the host.
