firewire dv video capture on tibook 400
Hello list folks
I am trying to get my jvc grdvl167eg dv camera and tibook 400 talking
through the firewire port. My kernel is a 2.4.20-ben8 . I have the
ieee1394 modules all loaded
cmp 2676 0 (unused)
raw1394 8672 0
video1394 14836 0 (unused)
dv1394 20052 0 (unused)
r128 101112 2
macserial 39172 0 (autoclean)
ohci1394 19680 0 [video1394 dv1394]
ieee1394 35528 0 [cmp raw1394 video1394 dv1394 ohci1394]
I would like to be able to capture video from the camera using either
dvgrab or (preferably) kino. I have compiled kino 0.64 which apparently
supports capture over dv1394. (the older version uses raw1394).
I'm not having much success. I can see the camera using gscanbus (i
believe this uses the raw1394 module), but kino won't capture from
either dv1394 or raw1394. with dv1394, it says dv1394 - no such device
(it should be using /dev/dv1394). for raw (/dev/raw1394) , it just
ls -l /dev/ | grep 1394
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 171, 34 Apr 29 18:09 dv1394
crw-rw---- 1 root disk 171, 0 Apr 29 17:14 raw1394
I am running these programs as root (naughty naughty).
I also seem to get some kernel oopses when i run gscanbus. Maybe the
modules are clashing or something.
Has anyone else successfully captured from a firewire camera under
debian powerpc? if so, how?
