I am trying to stream with ffmpeg a webcam. I am on a MBP mid-'09 running Lion. I know that you can not have direct access to the iSight (Although open-cv seems to be able to...) so I have an external camera.

I know that the camera works, since I use it on Linux and that OS X recognizes it since it pops up in Photo Booth.

I am looking for something to the effect of /dev/video0 but can't seem to find any.

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Edit: That question is similar, however they are asking specifically for the iSight camera. If there is an answer to that one, I would not need to use my USB camera. So I am keeping an eye on that question as well.

Edit: In system information, it reports Venus USB 2.0 Camera.
