View Full Version : [ubuntu] Record from a dazzle

June 5th, 2011, 07:18 PM
Hello to all

My son bought a Dazzle to record himself plaing on his Xbox. We followed a series of tutorials (rarely correct, often based on of (very) old versions of Ubuntu) to make run the dazzle with a HP 8710p and Ubuntu Studio Natty.

GStreamer and V4L2 are installed, as well as tons of codecs (among them most superfluous in my opinion, but who cares) mPlayer, VLC and tvTime are installed as well.

Current result:
- With mPlayer the tries are doomed to total failure, we got just a black screen
- With VLC there is an image but not a sound (all which is concerning the sound is grayed out when connected to the dazzle)
- On tvTime we have the image and the sound, but according to the documentation there is no possibility to record the video on disk

Is there a way to record a movie with sound from a Dazzle under Ubuntu?

Tanks in advance for your help!

Perhaps you could try xawtv, or motv.
