Bt878 video capture card...software?
Hi, I am a newbie and have been playing with my capture card (bt878 brooktree corp.) for a short time on windows 98 and now have installed RH 9. I want to be able to capture short amounts of footage of family events etc and save them to cd for safe keeping.
What is out there and how do I use it properly?
Your help would be most appreciated, thanks.
although it's not billed as such, http://mplayerhq.hu is really really good for capturing from the card. other programs exist to capture from it, but their encoding is quite poor, as opposed to mplayer which has a really complex and powerful encoding core. you'd need a command something like:
mencoder -tv on:driver=v4l:norm=ntsc:height=360:width=480:channel=67 -ovc lavc vcodec=mpeg4:vqmin=2 -oac mp3lame -vop pp=lb -o file.avi
that will encode the tv signal to divx5. it s a little unweidly, but very powerful, so i would recommend trying it. esp as mplayer is a superb media player too.
