can't 'cat /dev/video'

Hey, I've been having trouble streaming a webcam to stdout.  My problem is almost the exact same as the one described in this post:

xawtv gets video input from the camera fine and the device node shows up in /dev, but whenever i try 'cat /dev/video' or 'cat /dev/video0', I get 'cat: /dev/video: Invalid argument' or  'cat: /dev/video0: Invalid argument.'

Can anyone help/tell me what I'm doing wrong?
