NAME

       v4l - video4linux driver

SYNOPSIS

       Section "Module"
         ...
         Load "v4l"
       EndSection

DESCRIPTION

       v4l  is  an  Xorg  driver  for video4linux cards.  It provides a Xvideo
       extension port for video overlay.  Just add the driver  to  the  module
       list  within  the  module section of your xorg.conf file if you want to
       use it.  There are no config options.

       Note that the extmod module is also required  for  the  Xvideo  support
       (and lots of other extensions too).

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

       The v4l driver works with every piece of hardware which is supported by
       a video4linux (kernel-) device driver  and  is  able  to  handle  video
       overlay.

       bt848/bt878-based TV cards are the most popular hardware these days.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS

       Please  refer  to xorg.conf(5) for general configuration details.  This
       section only covers configuration details specific to this driver.
