|8.3.0. Video4Linux: video grabbing
IMPORTANT: two separate classes are provided for v4l and v4l2 devices. Some webcams and frame grabbers are only compatible with v4l2.
Notable examples include (among many others) TV/Tuner cards based on the BrookTree BT8x8 chips (such as the WinTV cards from Hauppaugge), v4l-supported webcams such the Logitech Quickam Pro 3000 and 4000, and v4l2-supported webcams, such as the 250 or so listed at http://mxhaard.free.fr/spca5xx.html .
NOTE: most of the webcams listed at the above page are only compatible with the v4l2 interface, NOT the v4l interface.
Personnally, I use a Logitech Quickcam for Notebooks Pro, which can go up to 960x720 resolution.
