Has anyone ever managed to get a Video-to-USB converter adaptor working in ubuntu.

Specifically I am trying to get an ImagingSource one
http://www.theimagingsource.com/en_US/products/converters/dfgusb2lt/
to work with linux (it is running okay in MS).

When I plug it in to my linux machines nothings happens. ImagingSource provided a fancy driver and control program for Windows but nothing for linux. I tried using the MS installer under wine but it didn't detect the camera.

"All" I want is to capture the videos to disk. I can view them later. All one got any ideas?

Or I anyone has ran a USB webcam under wine using a windows driver. How they actually done it would be useful.
