V4L2 interface with VLC

Dear All,

I'm designing video capture card using pcie. I have develop a pci driver for the same. Since its video capture card and there should be an application to display same. Assuming I will use either VLC or mplayer for displaying video data from pci driver. I should use media framework such as V4L2 for video and ALSA for audio. Moreover, I well get raw video data from pci driver.

I have few question regarding this.
1) How to make driver is compatible with VLC/mPlayer application.
2) In which way VLC/mplayer accept input video data, do it need to add any header(metadata) information to raw video data or not.
3) Suppose, v4l2 has to handle video data and add header to raw video then how its compatible with vlc/mplayer.
