If the only thing you need is to get the frame, I would suggest to use
V4L2 API directly. Since you are targeting concrete hardware platform
(camera) and there is no need to support all possible variety, it
should be easy to accomplish. There are also a lot of examples on the
web illustrating how to do it.
