View Full Version : [ubuntu] Kino Capture - dropped frames

August 9th, 2010, 09:33 PM
I'm getting dropped frames from both Digital8 & MiniDV camcorders using Kino. MyCPU doesn't seem to be spiking. I've made sure compiz is disabled and no memory/cpu hungry apps are running. I'm using SATA drives so DMA shouldn't be the issue.

The video and audio that is captured seems to be fine.

I'm not sure what else would be causing the problem. Does anyone have any ideas?


Hardware info:

I'm seeing the same issue using Ubuntu 10.10 (64-bit) on a much older machine than yours. I'm booting from a IDE drive but I'm capturing the data to a SATA drive, so I wouldn't think DMA would or should be an issue either (based on what I've been reading).

Were you able to get this resolved?
