This has pissed me off repeatedly because it means that you can't call yourself
in empathy without digging around in gstreamer-properties every time, so I'm
It requires changes to v4l2src so that it probes the video device a bit harder
I haven't made the same changes to v4lsrc from gst-plugins-base because:
<ocrete> alsuren: or just ignroe v4lsrc ? anyway, v4l is going away.
<alsuren> ocrete: as in sudo rm /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideo4linux.so ?
<ocrete> yea.. or you can fix it, I think its more broken than v4l2src ;)
progress will be tracked on:
Once this is fixed thing that will be left to do now (for my perfect setup)
will be to create a v4l2src2 that picks /dev/video1 by default (the high-def
logitech webcam on my docking station), and install it with a very slightly
higher priority than v4l2src.
