All the above are webcam drivers. I doubt that those drivers would work
with tvtime: this software were meant to test the Vector's deinterlacing
algorithms, so it requires some specific video formats/resolutions found on TV
and require 25 or 30 fps, as far as I remember. For example, It doesn't support
QCIF/QVGA cameras.

If you want to extend tvtime to use webcams, some work is needed. Probably the 
way would be to use libv4l, that also does the V4L1 conversion, if needed. This 
actually make sense even for a few TV cards like em28xx, where you could use a 
format with a lower color depth and/or lower resolution, in order to allow 
viewing two 
simultaneous streams.

So, I suggest you to just drop V4L1 from tvtime and convert it to use libv4l 
(the conversion
is trivial: just replace open/close/ioctl from the V4L2 driver to the libv4l 
ones). This will
allow you to drop the old V4L1 driver from it, and, if you decide later to 
accept other
resolutions and make it more webcam friendly, you'll just need to allow tvtime 
to accept
other video resolutions and disable the de-interlacing setup if a webcam is
