Webcamd in a jail

I would like to use the Hauppauge HD-PVR tv tuner with mythtv running in a jail. It is supported by the 'hdpvr' driver which is part of webcamd. Unfortunately, webcamd comes with quite a few dependencies (listed below), therefore i would rather install it in a jail and not on the host.

The manpage of webcamd suggest that cuse kernel module is loaded on the host, which i have done. Is it possible to use webcamd hdpvr driver in a jail without installing it on the host?

# pkg install webcamd

I was just puzzling over the same issue and dug into it a bit.

Webcamd ignores possible error conditions when calling the cuse library to create device nodes.

Creating device nodes requires PRIV_DRIVER privileges, which jail processes do not possess (nor can they if I understand prison_priv_check in the kernel correctly).

Because webcamd ignores the return code, it gives the appearance of success (Creating /dev/…).

I moved my webcamd to the jail's host instead, but opted to compile it from ports and omit the HAL dependency, greatly reducing the overall dependency graph.
