    Can't capture video with Kino.

    Ok, I can capture video from my video camera using Kino, but only if I launch the program as root.

    sudo kino

    If I do this, then it recognises my camera connected to my firewire card. If I just launch Kino from the menu, it doesn't see the camera at all.

    I have the version from the software center installed (1.3.3).

    Is there a way I can change the permissions so it can be launched by a normal user?

    From
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Firewire :

    This method makes a new group called firewire with control of the raw1394 device file, and your user a member of that group. The camcoder must be plugged in and turned on at boot time for this to work because udev will only create /dev/raw1394 if the camcoder is present and /dev/raw1394 must be created before bootmisc.sh is run.

    1.

    Open 'System > Administration > Users and Groups'. Add a new group and call it firewire
    2.

    Open the firewire group and add your user name to this group.
    3.

    Open a terminal and type

    sudo gedit /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh

    4.

    At the end of the file type

    chgrp firewire /dev/raw1394

    5.

    Reboot, or to apply changes now type directly in a terminal

    sudo chgrp firewire /dev/raw1394

    6. Insure camcorder is connected and turned on before the system is booted.

    Re: Can't capture video with Kino.

    I tried this:
    sudo ln /dev/fw0 /dev/raw1394
    I got the message:
    ln: accessing `/dev/fw0': No such file or directory

    Issue remains unresolved. Please help. Is the problem caused because of the 64bit o/s?
