V4L(4x) 										  V4L(4x)

NAME
       v4l - video4linux driver

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

DESCRIPTION
       v4l  is	an XFree86 driver for video4linux cards.  It provides a Xvideo extention port for
       video overlay.  Just add the driver to the module list within the module section  of  your
       XF86Config file if you want to use it.  There are no config options.

       Note that the the extmod module is also required for the Xvideo support (and lots of other
       extentions 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 XF86Config(5x) for general configuration details.  This section only cov-
       ers configuration details specific to this driver.
