 Can you open /dev/video1 with mplayer or something else?
 If its not in dmesg, why do you want to open it at all?
 Why don't you use /dev/video0?

 I don't really understand you issue, but it doesn't seem to be
 VLC specific.

 Hi,

 I found this bug while google'ing for my problem, I think this is gst 
 related. I installed a fresh 5.0.2 system (i386) on my laptop and gnome 
 from pkgsrc and the same error appears with totem on every file (mp3 or 
 whatever multimedia file) you open.

 I haven't found why gst is not using video0 neither a way to configure 
 this. GStreamer Properties application is rather useless for that.

 Hope this helps,

    Torsten

 ok..solved:

 x11/gst-plugins0.10-x11

 was missing.

 Maybe re-assign to gnome package maintainer and ask him/her to add this as 
 a dependency? I think most people will need it.

 Best regards

    Torsten
