Default Webcam emulation

Is there a way to make a virtual web cam on your system. I want it so that when the cam is accessed it will start playing an avi, or show a picture until it is disconnected. Also, is there a way to do the same thing with the sound card. I'm wanting to make a video conferencing answering machine.

I want a program that appears as a webcam to software, but is actually a prerecorded video.

I guess I don't have an excuse for not learning C anymore.
