Information about configuring the Portsdown transmitter to work with various Webcams will be posted here.

When called by ffmpeg, it will provide images at 640x480 or 1280x720 at 24FPS. Audio is 1 channel at 48000 sample rate.

When ffmpeg is killed the camera unloads its driver and becomes unavailable. This can be resolved by calling "v4l2-ctl --list-devices" 3 seconds later.

Supported by the Portsdown in MPEG-2 SD, 16:9 and 720p modes, and in H264 SD mode.
