Description Rajil Saraswat 2017-10-30 22:47:54 UTC
I want to set some parameters of my Hauppauge HDPVR like so:

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0  --set-standard=6

However, v4l-utils-1.6.3 is missing the v4l2-ctl binary. Is there any way to get the binary?

The v4l2-ctl binary was removed in r389588. I can't answer why but I would suggest looking at the changes here:

The review of the change and discussion around it is on Phabricator Hopefully you can find some more insight into the changes here:

FWIW, the version of v4l-utils I have install (1.20.0) has v4l2-ctl included:

 pkg info -l v4l-utils-1.20.0
     [snip other files...]
     [snip other files]

There seem to be issues with it (e.g. bug #25327), but this bug can be closed.

Doh! I meant bug #252327. Sorry.
