Hello PLUG list members,
Somewhat related to Jason's thread on video editing suites :-)
Recommendations for video grabbers with Linux support? USB / Firewire
seems the obvious answer from a hardware interface agnostic
perspective. PCI-E it seems to me would be far more hardware (grabber
chipset) specific. But I am thinkng the PCI-E interface is likely to
result in higher transfer bandwidth to the host.
The video sources will be both NTSC (Japanese camcorder) and
PAL. Composite video, although in both cases I may be able to get S-Video
out of them.
Make / model suggestions appreciated. I have seen reference to D-Link
DUB-AV3400 but cannot see this on their Australian website. There seem to
be quite a few players out there but information / confirmation that they
support Linux is sketchy at best - unless I have been looking in the wrong
Linux distros of choice (but unlikely to make a difference I think to this
discussion) openSuSE, Debian (etch) and Ubuntu. Hardware host HP dc7600
