I would like to use vlc to make video clips with a Logitech 3000 (Philips) Webcam. I was able to do just that on Ubuntu.

A patch for this purpose (that is, on FreeBSD) and instructions are found at:

The patch, for vlc-0.8.5 (an older version) is copied to the source directory before compilation. The compilation finished.

I loaded the pwc.ko module and verified that it was working by obtaining a display with pwcview. However, after configuring vlc the same way as in Ubuntu, a display was not obtained.

Do you have any advice about this?
