I am trying to save some footage from a webcam but am coming across some issues. My webcam supports compressed (MJPG) and raw (YUYv 4:2:2) formats and I am trying to get MJPG due to the faster fps. I have simplified my code (below) and have reproduced the issue.

```
import cv2
from datetime import datetime, timedelta
fourcc = cv2.VideoWriter_fourcc(*'avc1')
fn = "out.mp4"
cap = cv2.VideoCapture(0, cv2.CAP_V4L2) #tried with and without
cap.set(cv2.CAP_PROP_FOURCC, cv2.VideoWriter_fourcc(*"MJPG")) #also tried with and without
fps = int(cap.get(cv2.CAP_PROP_FPS))
out = cv2.VideoWriter(fn, fourcc, fps, (int(cap.get(3)), int(cap.get(4))))
frames_written = 0
print(f"FPS {fps}")
show = False
end = datetime.utcnow() + timedelta(seconds=20)
while end >= datetime.utcnow():
ret, frame = cap.read()
if not ret:
raise Exception("NO FRAME")
out.write(frame)
frames_written+=1
if show:
cv2.imshow("f", frame)
cv2.waitKey(33)
cap.release()
out.release()
cv2.destroyAllWindows()
```

When I try to use the webcam video device directly in OpenCV, the recorded footage although smooth, is sped up.

I have also tried creating a dummy video device and sending ffmpeg output to it using the following command:

```
ffmpeg -f v4l2 -input_format mjpeg -framerate 30 -video_size 1920x1080 -i /dev/video0 -pix_fmt yuyv422 -f v4l2 /dev/video4
```

When I try to use the dummy video device as the src the first couple seconds seem normal speed but is choppy but then speeds up and then is less choppy. Any help would be appreciated. I have been banging my head for the last couple of days.

My output for v4l2-ctl --list-formats-exts are:
