mpv and ffmpeg are installed.  To try mpv, a device should be 
specified and recognized.

guest@imager:~$ ls -d /dev/u*
/dev/uhid  /dev/uinput  /dev/urandom
guest@imager:~$ ls -d /dev/v4l/by-path/*
/dev/v4l/by-path/pci-0000:02:02.0-video-index0
/dev/v4l/by-path/pci-0000:02:02.0-video-index1
/dev/v4l/by-path/pci-0000:02:02.0-video-index2
/dev/v4l/by-path/pci-0000:02:02.0-video-index3

The v4l devices are on a Hauppauge pci WinTV card.  
The camera is plugged but not apparent in the software, to me at least.

?

Thanks,                  ... P.
