As the code requires that VIVID_WEBCAM_IVALS would be twice the number
of resolutions, I understand why you're doing that.

However, I agree with Kieran: looking at the code, it sounds to me that
it will indeed duplicate 1/15 and 1/25 intervals.

I suggest add two other intervals there, like:
12.5 fps and 29.995 fps, e. g.:

static const struct v4l2_fract webcam_intervals[VIVID_WEBCAM_IVALS] = {
{ 1, 1 },
{ 1, 2 },
{ 1, 4 },
{ 1, 5 },
{ 1, 10 },
{ 1, 15 },
{ 2, 50 },
{ 1, 25 },
{ 1, 30 },
{ 1, 40 },
{ 1, 50 },
{ 1001, 30000 },
{ 1, 60 },
};

Provided, of course, that vivid would support producing images
at fractional rate. I didn't check. If not, then simply add
1/20 and 1/40.

Last week, I got a crash with vivid running at 30 fps, while running an
event's race code, on a i7core (there, the code was switching all video
controls while subscribing/unsubscribing events). The same code worked
with lower fps.

While I didn't have time to debug it yet, I suspect that it has to do
with the time spent to produce a frame on vivid. So, while it would be
nice to have high rate support, I'm not sure if this is doable. It may,
but perhaps we need to disable some possible video output formats, as some
types may consume more time to build frames.

Thanks,
Mauro
