I have this V4l working in my laptop since January this year and pwc(4)
and Skype are just fine.
I moved the laptop with dump / restore to a VM on a Winodws7 host (don't
ask me why I do this :-( ) All is working fine and you can see the
results here: http://www.unixarea.de/moveFreeBSDintoVM.txt
If I say all is working fine, there is one small exception: When I plug
in my Phillips USB video cam, the device /dev/video0 appears, pwcview(1)
works fine and also Skype sees and uses the device. The called party see
my picture fine, but locally in Skype I don't have my own picture,
neither in the probe window in Options (there it is only black), and not
in the call embedded in the picture of the called party (there it's only
white). What could be the reason of this?
