It seems that libvideo-frequencies-perl provides a more updated version.

I think that removing Frequencies module from libvideo-capture-v4l-perl could be a good solution.

  * Add remove_frequencies patch to remove Video::Frequencies module, which
    is provided by libvideo-frequencies-perl (LP: #223815).
  * debian/control:
    - Depends on libvideo-frequencies-perl.
    - Update the description.
    - Update maintainer field as per spec.
