yes, you can use /dev/video0 as user

you can use VGA (640x480), QVGA(320x240), QQVGA(160x120), CIF(352x288), 
QCIF(176x144) and subQCIF(128x96) image sizes (about 
"resolution...hum...I don't know)

you can get from 10/1 to 30/1 fps

gst-launch-0.10 -v v4l2src ! video/x-raw-yuv, width=128, height=96, 
framerate=\(fraction\)25/1 ! xvimagesink

btw: always use xvimagesink instead of ximagesink 'cause performance is 
much better
