Hi Dave,

My bad! You are totally right: I forgot about my webcam.
When I did:

$ cat /dev/video0

I was actually getting data from my webcam (which supports read),
and not from the easycap device, which is /dev/video1.

So, everything makes sense now:

$ cat /dev/video1

open("/dev/video1", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 3
read(3, 0x8835000, 32768)               = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)

This is clearly shown by the piece of code mentioned before.

Thanks and sorry for the noise,
