Re: Announce: dvgrab, support for digital camcorders
I'm am in the process of packaging broadcast for debian.
For this reason I have contacted Andreas Bombe
<firstname.lastname@example.org>, who is the upstream author of
libraw and offered him sponsorship for libraw. He agreed, .. that said,
libraw should not be a problem, I have an apt-getable archive at
deb ftp://xdv.org/pub/gige/debian unstable multimedia
and I am willing to take over libraw completely if the upstream author
doesn't want to become a debian developer.
broadcast uses quicktime4linux
which in turn includes the source of libdv. I built it statically
into qt4linux, because it seems that it was changed a little bit.
If more packages depend on libdv we should investigate how to make a
dynamic library out of libdv.
