Oh yeah I'm really interested in such a thing. At the moment I'm using
pyVideo [1], but this is a bit unstable and it doesn't offer a method to
set the resolution directly. Video Capture instead doesn't have an
useable preview. 

So I was thinking of coding a new "Video Capture Module", that can be
extended by drivers for different cameras and capture boards - I think
especially about the products from [2].

But I can only start the work, if I get paid for it. Well and at the
moment there is less money for the related projects. But when the money
flows again, I will truly start such a module and release it as open
source. And if somebody else will start something, I would contribute to
it ...
