pw-v4l2 - Man Page

Use PipeWire instead of V4L2

Synopsis

pw-v4l2 [options] COMMAND [ARGUMENTS...]

Description

pw-v4l2 runs a command using a compatibility layer that maps PipeWire video devices to be visible to applications using V4L2.

This is implemented by preloading a shared library via LD_PRELOAD, which translates library calls that try to access V4L2 devices.

Options

-h

Show help.

-r NAME

The name of the remote instance to connect to. If left unspecified, a connection is made to the default PipeWire instance.

-v

Verbose operation.

Examples

pw-v4l2 v4l2-ctl --list-devices
