Description: V4l is not enabled in the transcode 1.0.4 PKGBUILD. Though this is probably a selfish request, I still have VHS tapes that I need to capture and convert and transcode is the best capture program that I've found because it gets perfect a/v synchronisation every time, unlike mencoder. Is there any reason why --enable-v4l cannot be added to the configure options for transcode? It worked fine when I did this to make my own local version of transcode 1.0.4 (on Arch x86_64).

Additional info:
transcode 1.0.4-1

Steps to reproduce: N/A
