Introducing vcamera, a virtual V4L2 camera.
This is a kernel module I cooked in a couple of days. The idea is to expose a v4l device that gets its data from user space.
I had 2 use cases in mind:
1) Educational purpose for myself (I'm really a kernel noob).
2) Streaming movies over skype, google talk, ... etc.
The idea could be good or completely rubbish but hey ? Learning can only be done with stupid ideas!
The code is highly unstable. It shouldn't oops the kernel but I'm not responsible. I've been developing and testing it inside qemu.
