2000: Peter Soderquist
this work at the ATSG Linux Technical Forum in Littleton. My presentation
included a showing of our 20 second clip using the Apple Quicktime
player running on a Windows2000 laptop.

works!!! At 5:00 pm, Jeff Hagan, Joe Lee and I hooked up Joe's Sony
miniDV camcorder and captured 20 seconds of live video - with sound
- in raw AVI form. To get to this point, Jeff had to install a 2.4
kernel (which has the IEEE 1394 subsystem built in) and rebuild dvgrab
and gscanbus with the new kernel includes. With the 2.2 kernel, the
card was failing to detect any attached nodes, whether by running
gscanbus or "cat proc/ohci1394". But with the 2.4 kernel, everything
started to work. We verified that capture was working by downloading
the output of dvgrab to Jeff's Windows2000 PC and running the Apple
Quicktime Player v4.1, which accepts raw DV files.

IEEE 1394 adapter arrived from Computers4Sure today. I decided to
get an ADS Pyro 3-port card, since it is the same one used by many
of the IEEE 1394 Linux developers. The card is recognized on the bus
and properly self-identifies, but dvgrab segfaults. The next step
is to hook up a camera.
