You may see better performance as a result, and save a bit of disk space in the future. Some months of fiddling later I am very nearly there. If you have a menu item in gnome for bootloader, you should run that as root, and make sure that its set to boot from the latest kernel. When I run the mencode shell script it goes through the initialization and then starts skipping frames – apparently ALL frames. But on my server that i use downstairs all i get is a green screen. No such file or directory [MGA] Couldn’t open:

Either that or your upgrade is well and truly borked. Lots of success with the latest zoneminder build that has v4l2 support built in, you will need to fully read the ZM documentation, first.

I just have one uzb. Im on Ubuntu I recently purchased an Easycap to see if I could get it to work in Linux.

They do get a bit hot after a while, but even while cold the image is the same. To test the audio capability, try the command mplayer tv: You will need to close this program, whatever it is, before running.

I have usg of these to, and I think we are screwed.

So on my upstairs computer with This would be pretty easy, i might do it later on tonight just have to find a spare I’ve also got the green output with a Ubuntu I commented out the “exit 1” line just like that post you linked to.


The video streams flawlessly. I could play my x through the yellow component in mplayer but black and white. Now, the stk11xx driver is a webcam driver, and while being able to communicate with the stkxx bridge chips, on those webcams the image capture is handled by omnivision OVxxx sesors. With the vlc dasycap scripts nothing ever comes up on the screen.

So It can be done, works well, only issue appears to be resizing the display window with firefox. So I think an internal component may be over-heating and shutting down. You can open this file in your editor of choice and look for lines suggesting that the driver is in distress. It’s interesting – running this through Ubuntu and mencoder, using the same VCR, the same tape and the same Easycap plugged eayscap the same USB port, the output in Ubuntu doesn’t look all choppy – just nice and smooth!

It might be a trivial problem, it might not. My first try with VLC gave an error so I searched further and saw that you did: I guess I have a mixture of different versions of usb on this motherboard.

Thanks for the suggestion – but yes, I have build-essential installed. Of course, knowing the syntax for setting the more sophisticated parameters isn’t enough – you also need to know what values to isb them, and here I guess you just have to do a bit of googling to see what is claimed to work.


D hehe thanks, can’t believe I missed that! However, neither tvtime nor camorama show picture or give sound. Allocated image buffer at ffffcf [ Hi Tobe, I have never tested the driver with S-Video because I don’t own any equipment with S-Video output, but I doubt whether the adapter you mention will solve anything I eayscap be wrong, of course. Luiz I’m having the same problem as Luiz on Natty.

What do you mean with “emulating OSS”? I’ve never written a driver, I should try ot-p128 some time to see what it involves. If you are comfortable with the vi editor, you can alternatively run.

I suspect without any real reason that some streamlining of the way in which inputs are switched could give maybe a two-fold improvement in framerate. So, could you perhaps explain the pieces otp128 the mencoder line you provided that worked?

I am using karmic by the way!
