Default /dev/videoN, vloopback & applications


coriander, vloopback-source, motion and skype are installed in
Squeeze here. vloopback.c compiled and the module loaded with
no obvious problems.

I used "modprobe vloopback" interactively. How should the
module be loaded automatically at startup?

joule:/# lsmod | grep vloop
vloopback 9842 0
videodev 25545 1 vloopback
joule:/# dmesg | grep vloop
[49343.049604] [vloopback_init] : video4linux loopback driver v1.3
[49343.053794] [vloopback_init] : Loopback 0 registered, input: video0, output:
[49343.053802] [vloopback_init] : Loopback 0 , Using 2 buffers

My understanding is that Coriander provides v4l to /dev/video0 and
another application can retrieve the stream from /dev/video1. It
works for motion. Given
joule:/# grep videodevice /etc/motion/motion.conf
videodevice /dev/video1
joule:/# grep cam_port /etc/motion/motion.conf
webcam_port 8081
Iceweasel displays the image at http://localhost:8081/.

Skype Options:Video Devices reports "Video loopback 0 output (dev/video1)"
but [Test] gives no response. Any suggestions to fix this?

Thanks, ... Peter E.
