Take a look at V4L2 drivers and how it works, I don't think you can read/write the video device pseudo-file directly. But maybe V4L2 exports some functionalities through the /sys/class" interface where you'll be able to read/write into fakes files to change some parameters without using a "true" programming language.
After alot of searching both on google and in /sys and even in /proc/sys, i can't find anything that would look like the files im looking for. I can't even find the video4linux documentation on this. im so tired of using mplayer, and i really want to learn how to do this so i can stream with http and stuff like that. dosent anybody know video4linux inn deep?
