Alexander and jr,
Thanks for your work! Having this support now in FreeBSD for my
multimedia/pwcbsd based cam in Skype, I'd like to have the same for the cam in
my EeePC 900, about which Linux says:
[ 11.540000] Linux video capture interface: v2.00
[ 11.560000] uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device CNF7129 (04f2:b071)
[ 11.690000] usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
[ 11.690000] USB Video Class driver (SVN r2008.02.27)
Any chance to get this supported in the future?
