The V4L API in itself does not support any FireWire devices. However, in the case of some devices, V4L applications can obtain access to video via Firewire, using either a loopback or LD_PRELOAD method.

via Loopback

  • V4L with Firewire camcorders:
  • V4L with IEEE1394 cameras:

via LD_PRELOAD

  • V4L with Firewire camcorders:
