Hello I have read that all entries in /dev are set up to work as if they were regular files. After plugging in my webcam, the OS creates /dev/video0 automatically. I then do:
maxtor@lounge:~$ sudo cat /dev/video0 > vyd [sudo] password for maxtor: cat:/dev/video0: No such devicemaxtor@lounge:~$
I was hoping that it would put a frame of video in 'vyd'. So why wont it?
Starting Cheese, next, works; so everything seems to be in order.
