the difference is, that the v4l2sink is currently unable to send data to
the v4l2loopback device.
the problem seems to be, that the v4l2loopback device accepts any
format, whereas the v4l2sink expects the device to return the one single
format accepted...

on the long run, i would prefer if v4l2sink could write to the loopback
device as well.
