I have had a look into the Java sources:

in jitsi/src/net/java/sip/communicator/impl/neomedia/device/JmfDeviceDetector.java 


there is no support for FreeBSD (only for MAC OS, Linux and Windows); I
added it the same way as Linux would do, hoping that our V4L2 is
doing its job; but it turned out that the Java/C interface shared object in 
jitsi/src/native/linux/video4linux2 does not get built by the port and
so it says in the log file:

12:57:00.189 INFO:
impl.neomedia.device.JmfDeviceDetector.initializeVideo().307 No Video4Linux2 detected: no jvideo4linux2 in java.library.path
