Is there any way I can manually set my laptop webcam quality to lower than native?

Is there a way in which I can set my laptop webcam to a lower quality ? For example, if I have a 720p webcam, can I lock it internally at 240p only ? All the other apps “such as cheeze and google meet” also then recognize my webcam as a 240p webcam.
thank you.

Can’t you set the resolution of your video in each program?

I think it should be possible with v4l-utils, details see here:

Webcam setup - ArchWiki

There are many more packages to be studied for this application:

Its possible to set it to 360p in google meet, but I kinda wanna go lower on purpose
