[PD] Using ov519 webcams (Eyetoy) with pdp/Gem (jpeg frames)

Hallo Frank!

I also just bought an ov518 camera (Terratec TerraCam USB) and use the ov51x
driver with JPEG compression.

(I think it has the compression, at least in the driver README stands:
For OV518/OV518+ cameras: Compression support is built into ov511.o and
   enabled by default.

For me it's working fine with pdp (have you tried it?), but I have problems
with GEM (very much noise in the picture and I had to exchange the blue and
red color channel - as I wrote some days ago).

Do you have the same problem?

@IOhannes: Maybe this compression is the problem with GEM (I haven't thought
about that earlier) ?
