An update to video capture project...
Thanks to Jon Larsen and others at the last OLUG meeting I looked at
Zoneminder which led me Blue-Cherry. Blue-Cherry sells video capture cards
among other things. Talking with them they said to use MPlayer.
They gave me the following code:
mplayer tv:// -tv
So now I have decent looking video from either a camcorder (Canon ZR-960
Mini-DV) or a DVD player (older Coby) running through the card. I also
tried the code and camcorder using a Dazzle device and got video.
1) Being able to save the videos and then find them
2) Getting audio to work.
3) Building a simple GUI that allows the users to:
choose video format (PAL, NTSC) and passes parameters that we have
pre-set (python if I had my choice)
Trudging through the MPlayer docs........somewhat frustrating....lot to
Using Mencoder I get errors when I put in "-o FileName" at end of string
mencoder tv:// -tv
Also I know a destination path goes somewhere --
