Ubuntu Multimedia :: Use USB Tape Converter But No /dev/video0 ?

Jul 7, 2011

I have a 'Gadget Geek VHS to DVD maker' USB device that takes analogue video in (composite) and plugs into the computer via USB.

Here is the output of lsuss (it's the eMPIA one):


Now this is essentially as far as I get, DBUS just says the following when I plug it in:


What I want to be able to do is open the (theoretical) output stream it produces in vlc and record it from there. Then I run into my next issue. There is no video* folder or link or file in my /dev directory and I can't stream video directly from the appropriate 'special file' inside /dev/bus/usb/00*/00*

My machine is ubuntu 10.4 64-bit

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Configure /dev/Video0 FrameRate

Jul 23, 2010

I downloaded camE and camorama in hope of controling my webcam's framerate for skype because right now it's 24-30 which gives me dark video. But if I lower the frame rate to something like 10, the video magically brightens. camE doesn't do anything..like it turns on my webcam and does some ftp..fails..turns of my webcam ..back to normal. Camorama can't connect to my webcame. Cheese, guvideo are successfully able to conect to my webcam and play around with it.What I want to do is edit my /dev/video0 or some file from where I can fix the framerate for skype.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Assigning Tv Card To / Dev / Video0 And Webcam To / Dev/video1?

Jan 25, 2010

I have a TV Card and a webcam connected to my computer. I've noticed that after a restart the TV Card capture device is /dev/video1 (while other times it's /dev/video0). When the device changes I have to update my tvtime.xml, which is a hassle.How can I force the capture device to be /dev/video0 and the webcam to /dev/video1?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Card Switches Between /dev/video1 And Video0?

Feb 3, 2010

Seemingly at random when I reboot my PC which I do every now and then, when I get it back up and running it will sometimes have switched my video card from using /dev/video1 to /dev/video0 or vice versa. It's not a huge deal but it is slightly annoying and I would like to understand why it does it and how I can stop it from flip flopping.

Not sure what you need to know in order to answer but I use 9.10, gnome 2.28.1, the video card is a Hauppauge 150 PVR something.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: /dev/video0 Not Accessible From Firefox/flash Except By Root

Dec 31, 2010

Running Lucid - was an LTS upgrade from 8.04.

I have a usb webcam (off brand). When installed, /dev/video0 is properly created and I can access the webcam through cheese as a regular user.

crw-rw----+ 1 root video 81, 0 2010-12-31 16:00 /dev/video0

The regular user is already a member of the video group, and I have checked all permissions under System->Admin->User/Groups->Advanced.

However, when as this regular user, I go to a website that tries to access my webcam via flash (ie, chatroulette or omegle), it does not detect the cam. (Firefox 3.6.13 with Flash 10)

I've already set the LD_PRELOAD as suggested elsewhere.

HOWEVER, if I LD_PRELOAD and run Firefox as root, all works fine and the flash plugin sees the webcam.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 2 Capture Cards Result In Bad /dev/video0 And /dev/video1 Output

Oct 3, 2010

I have 3 old video capture cards which I would like to use for CCTV. Each card supports 1 camera. So I would like to have 3 cameras setup in the end and monitor them with zoneminder. When each card is plugged in on it's own, it works fine. Video comes through clearly with xawtv and zoneminder. However as soon as I plug in a 2nd card (with or without a camera connected) the output in xawtv and zoneminder goes haywire. It looks like the 2nd card takes over the first card, resulting in majority of the picture coming from the 2nd card, and some (if any) from the 1st card. When viewing either of the two cards /dev/video0 or /dev/video1 in xawtv the output is identical. I've tried this on a fresh 10.04 Ubuntu install, and on an older MythTV debian computer, the same results. Here are lspci -vv outputs with 2 combinations of cards (same fuzzy output):


My thoughts are because the capture cards are cheap (similar to winmodems), the problem may be in the software kernel modules not allowing room for other similar capture cards to run at the same time. Can anyone suggest me in the right direction? Do I need to setup some sort of memory allocation for each card manually? Something in the BIOS? An extra option when the card modules are loaded?

Ubuntu :: Use The Tar Command With A Tape Drive - Data Is Larger Then 1 Tape

Mar 8, 2010

I am looking at getting a DLT drive for my network; however, I have never used the tar command with a tape drive. What happens if the data is larger then 1 tape? Does the tar application automatically span tapes or do I need to use switches so it spans multipule tapes? Right now my Full backup will take 2 or 3 tapes.

Debian Hardware :: Getting HPE Library And Tape Tools To Recognize Tape Drive

Apr 3, 2016

I have been using an LTO-5 Ultrium-3000 tape drive connected to an ATTO HBA without problem. I can control the tape drive using "mt -f /dev/nst0" and have been able to make successful backups using cpio, tar, and dump/restore. I followed some instructions on the web about how to install the HPE Library and Tape Tools application (version 4.21) which relies on conversion of a rpm to a deb file. The software seems to have been installed correctly and runs. However the hardware scan function does not recognize my tape drive. The following is suggested in the user manual if the tape device is not recognized by the software under Linux:

1. Login as root.
2. Edit the following file:
vi /etc/modules.conf
3. Add the following line as appropriate:
add options scsi_mod max_scsi_luns=128
4. Reboot the computer.

The problem is I don't have an /etc/modules.conf and am not sure exactly which file would be equivalent? If this is even the correct solution.

My tape drive is controllable and functions well using "mt -f /dev/nst0 status" so it seems to be a matter of LT&T software to detect the tape drive.

At the risk of providing too much info here some, possibly relevant, output from lshw

description: PCI bridge
product: 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port 1
vendor: Intel Corporation
physical id: 1c
bus info: pci@0000:00:1c.0

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Converter For MS Mpeg4?

Aug 11, 2010

I am trying to find a way to convert MS Mpeg4 files to a format that is playable on Totem or any of the media players for Ubuntu. I have tried many converters, even trying ones in Windows (I really didn't want to but thought I would give it a shot)

I have installed all the limited FFMPEG and x2.64 restricted and limited libraries. I have all the multiverse and universe repositories. I have tried WINFF, Avidemux, DeVeDe but to no avail and now I am tearing my hair out. Totem cannot find any plugins suitable.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Converter To Use On Common Avi Files

Mar 22, 2010

I was looking for a converter to use on common avi files and maybe some others and came across this thread. I followed it all the way to where it asks me to install ConvertIt by adding the repos and then running Synaptic. I found convertit and marked for install and clicked apply and got this error:

Depends: gambas2-runtime (<2.1) but 2.13.1-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
Depends: gambas2-gb-qt (<2.1) but 2.13.1-1ubuntu1 is to be installed

So i check synaptic for that and i had them installed already from the guide. So i marked them all for reinstall since i installed them in the terminal the first time. Reinstalled and i still get the same error.

Any idea whats wrong? Or is there a better movie converter thats easier? I just want to re encode the files so the will play on my 360.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Alternative To AVS Video Converter?

Feb 6, 2011

So I still have a windows partition for two reasons: 1) Steam I know you can run this on wine and I have tried that, but I can;t run valve games at max everything (including AA and Filtering) and I like my good graphics so there is not much I can do about that. The other reason is AVS Video Converter, I've fallen in love with it, it converts anything to anything quickly and flawlessly, but I want an alternative to it for Ubuntu, something that works flawlessly just like AVS, to refine my needs more, I use it to convert video for my PSP.
