Capturing a video using USB camera on iMX6 SL

I have a iMX6 Sololite board. This board doesn't have any embedded camera

as dual and quad core board has it. I am using Logitech camera.

And, the version of LTIB I am using is L3.0.35_12.10.02.


I am trying to capture the video using USB webcam from the board.

To do this, I have selected all these packages imx_test, util_linux, gstreamer, ffmpeg,

screen and have compiled them using LTIB. I went to the source code

of imx_test to see all the examples that are given and found mxc_v4l2_capture.c, but

this file is not compiled, so wasn't able to run it for capturing a video.


Can anyone please tell me how can I capture the video using USB webcam?

Any help is appreciated.
