Welcome

Do you see a blue background here?
Welcome to the Video for Linux resources page. Here you will find links to programs and information about this API which actually handles more than just video these days. Video sources include TV cards and quickcams, but there are also audio sources like radio cards.

What's New

16 March 2006

  • New links: v4lcaploop, Philips USB Webcam Driver for Linux, Linux UVC driver and tools, xfce4-goodies

Setup/Assistance

I have worked on three V4L drivers directly:
  • radio-aimslab
  • radio-aztech
  • radio-cadet
However, it's been years since any development happened on them, and I don't even use them any more myself. Blame Clear Channel for ruining FM radio. If you have a problem with these three drivers that isn't related to porting it forward, you can try mailing me. Any other V4L driver with my name in the header is merely derived from those three and I have no specific knowledge about that hardware.

Don't mail me about any other driver. I'll just delete it. Use the mailing list and you'll probably reach someone who can actually help you.

Is it obvious that I get a lot of misdirected mail?

New links

I'm always looking for new V4L/V4L2 links. If your favorite project that uses these APIs isn't listed, please send me the URL.

Other projects that have something to do with video on Linux that don't actually involve this API are beyond the scope of this page.
