Currently you can only attempt to change the capture resolution and toggle a De-interlace option.

Only video device drivers that support 'Video For Linux' (v4l2) are supported. The device/driver must also: Allow Memory Mapping , support Capture Formats: 24bit RGB or BGR and/or YUYV, and MUST allow for at least 2 ReadBuffers in the capture format supported.

If your video feed does not show as available you can review the possible reason by visiting 'Configuration & Tools'->'Configuration'->'User' and clicking on the 'Video In Report'.
