View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unable to Capture Video from Canon ZR-850

August 7th, 2010, 04:16 AM
I've tried searching and haven't found a solution. I'm relatively new to Ubuntu (only been using it for six/seven months) and haven't tried my camera with it until just now.

I plug it in with firewire and put it in both tape and camera mode and I'm not able to capture from the device with Pitivi... can't even see the stream in VLC. I probably just need to install a package, but I've got no idea which one to use. Any suggestions?

I'm very interested in this topic as well...

I have a Canon ZR-800 and GL-2, but have not tried to capture video yet. (lack of round tuits)

Some of my web wandering has found complaints or concerns about firewire -- having nothing to do with these specific cameras.

Nothing? No help?
