Comment (by nls):

 With the rise of ultra cheap (real) full HD/4k MJPEG USB capture devices
 in recent months, this request has gained real significance. It would be
 very useful to be able to use ffmpeg with them on Raspbery Pi SBCs. I know
 the OMX interface has long been deprecated but if it's not a big work, it
 might well worth implementing this addition. Currently gstreamer is the
 only tool capable of doing it, but it's pretty wonky and cryptic to use,
 and not exactly stable.
