     If the uvideo device attaches successfully, it will attach the video(4)
     driver to provide higher-level access.

     The driver needs a set of firmware for some devices which are loaded when
     a device gets attached:


     A prepackaged version of the firmware can be installed using

     intro(4), usb(4), video(4)

     The uvideo driver first appeared in OpenBSD 4.4.
