Replace webcam with local video (file) or streamed video

Dear All,

First of all, wishing you all a happy new year, healthy and inventing more features for Jitsi.

I wonder whether it is possible to create a video track to join a room from a local video file or even from a network streamed URL, just like switching between several cameras or Desktop sharing. In other words , while joining a conference room, I would to inject a local video file like mp4 file to a video track, which is conventionally created from a local webcam. Going further than that, I could even inject an streaming URL (like a DASH, HLS or RTSP streaming URL) into that track.
Many thanks for your guide.
Best wishes
