I've had to look up with "omx" actually stands for , but from an outsider view, they don't seem to be mutually exclusive or even competing interfaces. v4l2 is the interface you use to get at camera data, in whatever format the camera gives you. There are no alternatives to that. OpenMax gives you a way to accelerate video codecs, which is good, but this sits a layer higher up in the stack. Supporting omx is probably a good idea, but would be totally optional.
