During the past five years a lot of work went into the video4linux subsystem of the kernel, in particular with respect to the frameworks that help the driver developers. Today all of the important pieces are in place, so this is a good time to give an overview of the kernel frameworks that help video4linux driver developers create good drivers. This presentation describes which frameworks are available, what the main structures are that you need to use and how they relate to one another.
