Inuput from Video Card and output to S-Video


I was asked to create a Linux based web script to get input from a Video Card and output to another card (through S-Video interface)
Please help me find any link or development method or tutorial which help me to start to learn to develop such a application

I already install Fedora 4 and Ajanta 1. I went through all the core program of C++.

Please help me on this.

Thanks

Linux based web script

Several problems with this.
Problem one. If it's a "web" script you can't program it in C++ as the users web browser isnt going to run bits of C++ code it finds floating around on the net.
Problem two. If it's a "web" script your not going to have access to the users hardware to do things like link video output to svideo cards...

If your not actually making a web script, and simply want to write a program to run on your computer, or a computer you have access to so you can install, then drop the programming and just get a video card that outputs s-video and pull up a window with video input on it, and click "fullscreen."

Thanks for your reply,

Well, I need to develope a middleware for the hospitality industry. The Middle Ware Linux System having Having Intefrace to Vod, TV, etc.

For example the Guest using a plasma (TV) and he request for a VoD using RemoteControl (IR) to watch a movie. So the signal I need to transfer to Middleware. In the middleware I need a program or script) to get the signal and find out whether the guest request for a TV or VoD. and Switch the VoD input to Him.

Are there any resources for this to learn. Do I need to learn driver programming for this.

Please advice

Um, yikes. You most certainly will not find a tutorial that tells you how to write, from scratch, a complete video on demand system with a combination of live and pre-recorded media. This is the sort of thing that teams of developers usualy work on for years...
