WSL: Add Hardwaresupport for Video capture devices
I want to use process my webcam stream via OpenCV. Apparently there is no support for webcams yet, as /dev/ is pretty empty.
´--- Opening /dev/video0...
stat: No such file or directory
For starters, it would be great if the (actually existing in windows <= 2003) feature discussed at https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/266908-command-prompt-console-windows-subsystem-for-l/suggestions/6539325-console-graphics-screenbuffers
was first fixed!
Just supporting USB UVC would be a good start and more generic than having to support various different capture devices. But even a fake video device would be handy for development. Just having a /dev/video0 that returns a test pattern.
What you are asking for is one the top voted requests on here and something Microsoft is working on.

Are there any workarounds?
