What is the program/command for switching video devices drivers between v4l and v4l2?
 
I know there is one out-there but I don't remember it at all.

My webcam doesn't work with V4l2, and that's the default loaded driver.

What's the way for swtiching it back to v4l?

I remember once I fonud a program (I think it was gnome-devices or something like that, honestly I don't remember well) that allowed me to change between using v4l or v4l2 for each video device.

Is there anyone that knows what I'm talking about?

Thank you in advance,

Mauricio

Hi Mauricio,

I can name just one program with such function - Ekiga.
There, in 'Preference/Video Devices' window you can choose between Picture/V4l/V4l2 plugins.

Is that what you meant?

In console you can do it with module management (like rmmod command) to remove wrong driver from the memory.

Hi,

That wasn't exactly what I meant. I knew that about ekiga, but when you're trying to use another program, that doesn't help.

I have found what I was looking for, googling a lot. The command was: gstreamer-properties

Thank you anyway!
