Just wanted to share after some unsuccessfull attempts I finally got some 
visible image in Cin 5.1 capture monitor with emulated v4l2 device ('modprobe 
vivid' as root, if of course this module was compiled for your kernel. I use 
4.12.0 kernel)

Initially I saw only very garbled image, but after setting capture resolution to 
1280x720, and creating 'Channel' in channel editor (so by modifying it it was 
possible to choise webcam input of emulated device), and after one Cinelerra 
crash after trying to watch /dev/video0 in parallel via mplayer it finally 
worked! Of course this is mostly static test image, so easy to compress, but 
there also was much more noisy  input, so some more tests ahead!
