Hello Sab,

The webcam drivers in the latest kernels offer the v4l2 interface
instead of the v4l1. Also, external drivers, as gspcav1, did the image
conversion in the kernel, which is forbidden.

As a consequence, you must run most of the video applications with the
wrapper of the v4l library.

All information is in my page (see below).
