v4l2-conf- VIDIOC_QUERYCAP Invalid argument

Hey all,
Am having problems with V4L2 stuff, trying to use it to capture and analyze images from a camera. My program segmentation faults with the error

tcsetpgrp failed in terminal inferior: Inappropropriate ioctl for device

When I run v4l-conf, it tells me
dev/video0 [v4l2]: ioctl VIDIOC_QUERYCAP: Invalid Argument

I have a camera working with xawtv in color already, but was keen to get my code working.

1. Any ideas what VIDIOC_QUERYCAP thing means?
2. Anything I can do about it?

Cheers in advance.
