Thanks for committing this, Alexander.
A couple of notes.
1. This code does work on 8.0 and 7.2. If you are interested in
testing on those systems, you can fetch the files at the URL
2. The version committed does not contain support for a video
clip list (in the VIDIOCSWIN ioctl). This is not a problem
for the Linux skype port or browser-based flash camera apps
since these do not use video clipping.
I have added video clip list support in the version on my
site, below, however there are some caveats which are
documented on the web page. If you are familiar with the use
of a V4L video clip list, please take a look at the URL below
and send feedback.
The latest version is at:
My testing is with a pwc(4) based webcam (in the multimedia/pwc
port). This driver has V4L support. If you test with any other
driver, please do send feedback.
