video camera capture

I recall using a small application that captured the output of a USB camera and streamed it live to the display - I thought it was V4L but this doesn’t seem to be an application if it ever were .

It wasn’t kamaso (which isn’t packaged for openSUSE)

Can anyone prompt me or suggest an alternative, please?

The very well known VLC player can do many things with a camera, including setting up as a live streaming server for the camera.
