Camera stays on when virtual device not in use?

I recently discovered Splitcam and I’m very impressed.  I tried SplitCam as a virtual video device for use in MS-Teams and this works perfectly.

Only thing I wonder is that the webcam is activated continuously, even when SplitCam is minimized and there is no video activity in MS-Teams.  I know from other virtual video devices I tried in the past (like e.g. ManyCam) that, when minimized, the camera is not activated. Only when a video call is ongoing in MS-Teams the virtual video device switches on the camera.  When the video call is stopped, the camera goes off also.

When using SplitCam as a virtual device, I must manually launch SplitCam every time I start a MS-Teams video call and I have to manually shut down SplitCam when the video call is over.  Otherwise the camera stays on all day.

Am I missing some setting, or is this behavior not possible with SplitCam?

Hello
Sorry with answer delay.
Yes splitcam work till you finish it. Another way you can go to splitcam and pause camera or click on eye near camera to disable it.
