Capture is a program that can grab and play DV data at the same time.
Capture is a program that can grab and play DV data at the same time. It use libdv, dvgrab and audio algorithms.

Included is the last libdv version with a very few modified version of playdv.c in the subdirectory named libdv.

If you have a Video Camera Recorder IEEE 1394 compliant and if you want to play your movies on your computer screen, that's Capture you need. This software is based on dvgrab for data recording, libdv for video decoding and dv audio for sound playing.


1. In the libdv subdirectory : just type "make". You will obtain playdv with a new feature.

2. In the main directory : type "make". This build the capture program. Try "capture --help" for more informations.

2(bis). If you type "make captureAVI", you build captureAVI which is the capture program with the ability to save DV video in AVI file format. Try "captureAVI --help" for more informations.


To use capture just type "capture"/"captureAVI" and it will grab and play movie that your VCR is curently playing.

Note that the grabber is fast BUT the frames decoder is slow. On my PII 300Mhz I can see only 15% of the video frames.

What's New in This Release:

Added new buffer management : more frame are sent to the frames decoder
Fixed some bugs in corrupted frame detection
Improve clean exit
Added AVI format for file storage
