I want to capture video from a USB camera plugged into an Eee and record it directly to the hard drive. What would be the best way to do this? Any particular file system? Is there any software that can handle this?
I know I did this before, I think I was using either ffmpeg of xdtv. For filesystem, it depends, if you're gonna do a lot of recording of very large files, then you should probably use JFS or XFS, this is also recommended in the mythtv wiki.
Thanks for the reply, I've decided that ZoneMinder http://www.zoneminder.com/ does what I need-it looks like an excellent piece of software. Thanks for the file system recommendations, I'll look into those.
