  • cherry-picks from 'experimental'
  • show full format in sysfs instead of fourcc
  • VIDIOC_G/S_CTRL:
    keep_format(0/1)
    sustain_framerate(0/1)
    timeout(integer)
    timeout_image_io(0/1)
  • v4l2loopback-ctl convenience script to change format and timeout parameters

afaict, this basically deprecates the old "experimental" branch (and i think it is better than it used to be)

i therefore renamed the olde experimental branch to "feature/timeout/deprecated" and made your "master" branch the new "experimental"

noteable differences between my "experimental" and your "master" are now:

  • v4l2loopback_io is now in utils/
  • limit the maximum framesize in s_fmt

i need to do some more testing, and once that is successull, i think i can do another release

If you're thinking of doing a release, then this is probably worth mentioning.

I was messing with Anton's branch in a VM a couple days ago and something caused the VM to completely freeze. I forget the conditions that caused the freeze, but I was able to reproduce it twice.

I'll see if I can make it happen again tonight.

hopefully this was due to to the unbound framesizes, which should be fixed in the experimental branch

if not, i would of course be thankful for hints what happens (and i found that using a virtual machine (e.g. VirtualBox) helps a lot when dealing with kernel freezes)

That must have been it. I can't repo it anymore.
