Hi, Zoom_Master

 

Currently, virtual backgrounds for video files are not available for upload.

 

I don't know if it's related, but I think it's a countermeasure to the prank of using his or her video as a virtual background to make it look like he or she is in the video.

They may be using a third-party Virtual Camera application to do this - like OBS or Snap Camera - and not Zoom itself.

Hi, Zoom_Master

 

It's true that last year the video virtual background was made by Uploads.
I think she is using the same files that she uploaded in the past.
It is not possible to upload new ones.
It is wise not to use third party virtual camera applications as they can be very demanding on your PC.
