I've lost track of the beginning of this thread, but on the assumption
that the driver works and provides appropriate devices, there are a
number of programs that would capture video. What have you tried? I
suspect that at a minimum, ffmped and mendcoder could do it and there
are surely others.

I believe mencoder can do this. man mencoder.
