The device file dialogues to open the stream aren't reasonable. The
default device in VLC is /dev/dvb/video0 but /dev/dvb doesn't exist.
It must be a default compiled in or from a configuration file.
VLC and Test Bench show /dev/v4l/by-path/ as empty whereas it contains

the clipboard, selected /dev/v4l/by-path/ in the dialogue and pasted
the file name "pci-00 ...". The "Open" button was inactive but
"Enter" opened the device. Test Bench then gave a plausible image
from the camera. One problem solved.
