Hi Guys,

I have a video adaptor converting a signal from an old camera into a vga

Can anyone tell me the correct way to address the vga port from gst-launch?

It doesn't show up on the /dev/video<n> list.  There is only /dev/video0,
which is my webcam. 

There is a vga-arbiter, but it gives permission denied.

I'd like to have something like:

gst-launch v4l2src device=/dev/xxxx ! xvimagesink

Your advice would be appreciated.
