hm ... I thought that this works ... (but never tried it) ...

anyway, you can change the following in videoDV4L.cpp (I think line 194):

      if ((fd=open("/dev/dv1394", O_RDWR)) < 0)    {
      if ((fd=open("/dev/dv1394/0", O_RDWR)) < 0)    { 

and then recompile ...

@GEM-devs: maybe we should introduce a message to set the device properly ? (and document it in the help file ;) ...)
