Hello

I am trying to understand, at least in general detail how media framework, omap3 isp and v4l2 cooperate to control camera in newer kernels, I am using caspa camera. As it is written, to configure pipeline we must use media-ctl, in every tutorial there are those commands:

media-ctl -v -l '"mt9v032 3-005c":0->"OMAP3 ISP CCDC":0[1]'
media-ctl -v -l '"OMAP3 ISP CCDC":1->"OMAP3 ISP CCDC output":0[1]'
media-ctl -v -f '"mt9v032 3-005c":0 [SGRBG10 752x480]'
media-ctl -v -f '"OMAP3 ISP CCDC":1 [SGRBG10 752x480]'

as I understand we are connecting some end-points in the pipeline. In this case the camera driver output goes to oma3isp ccdc and it pushes this data to omap3isp output.

Firstly, I am wondering what ccdc stands for, is it charged-couple device control? Or does this mean something completely different.

Also, on older kernels you could get some snaps with mplayer, like it is explained here:
http://wiki.gumstix.org/index.php?title=Caspa_camera_boards
In here: http://omappedia.org/wiki/Camera-ISP_Driver it says that for capturing images I could use " any v4l2 compatible capture app (mplayer w/v4l2 plugin, Laurent's yavta app, etc.)". I can get raw images with yavta, but is it possible to get something like bmp or jpeg using mplayer? The command from the link about caspa camera boards for 2.6.34 doesn't work in newer kernels.
