Gv4l is a GUI frontend for the V4L (Video For Linux) functions of transcode, used to record video (and audio) streams from a V4L devices, such as tuners and webcams, in encoded (Xvid, DivX, etc.) or raw video formats.
To use Gv4l you'll need to have transcode-0.6.7 or later installed. Having xawtv installed is also recommended because transcode uses the xawtv configuration file ($HOME/.xawtv) to get the channels, brightness, contrast, and possibly other information.
