Subject: Uses obsolete V4L1 API
Date: Wed, 10 Feb 2010 00:48:03 +0000
Package: aatv
Version: 0.3-5
Severity: serious

The V4L1 API is obsolete and does not work with most new V4L drivers.
You can use libv4l as an emulation layer; see

Hi Uwe,

I made an initial attempt at a patch (attached) to port aatv to libv4l1.
I tested with a webcam at the BSP, but I could not get it to return data
from the webcam. I suspect someone with knowledge of V4L2 should port
the app to the proper V4L2 APIs instead. Alternatively, since mplayer
has a V4L driver and can output colour on the console using libcaca,
aatv could simply be removed from the archive.

I had the same problems when I tried some time ago.
