-What: video1394 (a.k.a. "OHCI-1394 Video support" for FireWire)
-Date: May 2010 (scheduled), finally removed in kernel v2.6.37
-Contact: linux1394-devel@lists.sourceforge.net
-Description:
- /dev/video1394/* were character device files, one for each FireWire
- controller, which were used for isochronous I/O. It was added as an
- alternative to raw1394's isochronous I/O functionality which had
- performance issues in its first generation. Any video1394 user had
- to use raw1394 + libraw1394 too because video1394 did not provide
- asynchronous I/O for device discovery and configuration.
- Replaced by /dev/fw*, i.e. the <linux/firewire-cdev.h> ABI of
- firewire-core.

-Users:
- libdc1394 (works with firewire-cdev too, transparent to library ABI
- users)
