Hi guys...this is the first time I came to this website...really hope to get help here...
you see...I have a old P3...700..would like to use it for my own multimedia station...since my VCR is spoilt...I was thinking of getting a video capture card...but i got stuck even before the start..
you see..true...you would be able to get lots of video capture card in the market...but one that can record, and it's for linux...I can't seem to find one..I understand from sourceforge that there are a couple of projects that would enable us to recrod..but..I would like to buy 1 card off the shelves and save time instead of trying out each software..
2nd question is that i read from the following link
Running web and mp3 player without X windows
but...I still can't get what is a FB...so..let say I want
1) User Interaction
•The user would log in and not see any Linux interface. Straightaway, they would see a full screen interface. This interface would need to be a web browser but the user is not supposed to know it. The interface would need to be full screen with no buttons and address of a web browser.
•There should be a main screen where user can choose what they want to do.
•If the user inserts a CD, they should disable the auto pop up of the folder. They will then do the respective thing they want to do like playing the CD or DVD.
•The user would choose an mp3 on the main screen and choose then a list of songs should appear. This would actually point to a static folder where it would read all the mp3 files. On the top of this play list, the users suppose to be able to choose in alphabetical order of the song.
3)Playing DVD / CD
•From the main screen, the user should be able to choose to play DVD. They must of course first insert the DVD. If no disc is inserted, the screen should prompt to insert DVD / CD. Once inserted, it would play the movies or songs.
•If the one inserted is a CD, it should display the list of the songs and the song that the system is currently playing.
•If the one inserted is an mp3 CD, it should then go into another folder, where this folder would display the mp3 files in the disc. Once a file is selected for playing, the screen should display the information of the songs.
•On the main screen, we should display a TV function. Once click, we would go into the TV menu. This TV menu would have few options. One is to record TV, another is to play the recorded TV shows.
•The user should be able to choose what channel they want to record, time and other related information. They would then give this record a name of their choice. This is to enable them to choose easily in the future when they want to watch the recorded show.
•When watching the recorded show, they would just need to choose the name that they recorded, and play.
This is a rough idea of my dream...anyone think this could be possible in linux?? if yes...how do I get started??
