"-r 1 " is just going to use the input file sampling rate, no? I don't
think this is a sampling rate problem unless there's signs of "rolling
shutters" or total disconnect in the expected output playback.
"You need to check with V4L utilities or ffmpeg, which formats /
resolutions your v4l2 device provides. I would guess that docker gives you
only an abstraction (it's a kind of virtualization, right?)."
Agree with that. Cameras are getting smaller and smaller.... and in order
to get away with that software is used on the the intake signal and
unwrapped/decompressed into larger resolutions as it goes to our screens.
The reason I suggested scaling is because you didn't complain about the
image not making sense... which means ffmpeg was able to decode the stream
and encode it into some format ( maybe not the ideal one. ) My guess is
that the pre-packaged web cam software driver might perform a software
unwrapping of the data, which allows it to have a higher resolution than
perhaps something you can grab from ffmpeg. That proprietary software
might also preform a scaling operation using a nice/custom filter to up-rez
it so that they can claim it has X resolution even though the raw data
might not actually be that. I have not heard about this problem with web
cams but it is a conversation I've witnessed when people get data from
cameras mounted on drones.
