Using a Fire-i camera

Install a Unibrain Fire-i BCL 1.2 camera.
Add my id to /etc/group/...video .
Do "modprobe vloopback".

peter@joule:~$ lsmod | grep v4l
v4l1_compat            10250  1 videodev
peter@joule:~$ lsmod | grep vloop
vloopback               9842  1 
videodev               25605  2 vloopback
peter@joule:~$ ls -l /dev/video*
crw-rw----+ 1 root video 81, 0 Nov  6 14:16 /dev/video0
crw-rw----+ 1 root video 81, 1 Nov  6 14:16 /dev/video1

Start Coriander and click on the Services tab.
Under the V4L tab the device is /dev/video0.

A click on the V4L button gives two error windows.
First "Failed to open V4L device, /dev/video0".
Then "Error: Could not start the V4L service
Please check that:
-V4L kernel modules are loaded ...
-you have read/write permission on the selected video device
-the vloopback module is loaded".

What else should be checked?

Thanks,          ... Peter E.
