One possible solution is to use native V4L2 with vic. I do have some native
V4L2 grabber code available for vic at:
I used to use it a while ago with AG1, when the V4L2 Bt878 driver's V4L
compatibility layer used to cause vic to seize up. For AG2, the
grabber-v4l2.cpp code would need minor modifications to add support for the
VIC_DEVICE env variable which VideoProducer.py sets to tell vic which V4L
device to use (the VIC_DEVICE env variable is really only needed if you use
something other than the default composite input).
The V4L2 Bt878 driver's V4L compatibilty layer seems to be okay now, so I
haven't played with native V4L2 support with AG2.

Glad to hear.
