"Exporting" device from host to container

Hello all,

I'm using the lastest version of proxmox, I have installed a new card for video capture. On the host its seems fine and the device /dev/video0 exists.

On the guest (debian Wiki default container) I don't have the device, how can I create this device on the guest so that it can be "connected" to the same one on the host ?

I'm trying to install zoneminder on the guest.
