My understanding is that a notarized plugin would work, is this correct?
I don’t think so. The particular stumbling block you’ve encountered is that FaceTime enables library validation which prevents it from loading third-party code. This is true regardless of whether the code is notarised or not.
Alas, CoreMediaIO is somewhat outside of my area of expertise, so I’m not able to give you a definitive answer here. My recommendation is that you open a DTS tech support incident and talk to our CoreMediaIO about your options.

Thank you for reply. Looks like DTS is the way to go from here. Details available on notarization are very few, but I remember reading somewhere notarization can be seen as co-signing. That made me think my plugin would not technically be third-party code as it would be co-signed by Apple.
Hi, did you manage to find out something about 3rd party plugin loading in the notarized brave new world? I'd appreciate any bit of information!
How did it went with DTS? What were the options of CoreMediaIO plugin to work with FaceTime? (and hopefully other apps that uses the camera) – now since macOS Catalina is on the horizon and mandates hardening.
