After failing to find a way of zooming and panning my webcam under ekiga, and seeing the V4L2 spec, I wondered "does V4L2 introduce the capability of doing this?" Alas, as far as I can see, it doesn't. Digital cropping yes, but optical zooming, or panning, no.
The 110MB Windows foistware package that came with the webcam can do it though, so it definitely should be a capability of V4L2, no?
