Well, that would be nice...

The goal would be to support both kind of v4l2 input devices (from a VLC
perspective): the ones that output raw data, and the ones that output a
mpeg encoded stream. The later kind of devices could be supported by
making the pvr module more configurable and not doing some assumptions.
The first kind of devices require an "access module" module. The best
would however to merge both modules at some point.

The pvr and v4l modules are good starts if you want to find out about
VLC's internal API...

Don't hesitate to ask any question if you're still interested...
