Does this info look good? I can see a white and black line on the top of the video and what looks like interlace lines in the video when there is movement. I would like to start copying my VHS tames to MPEG2 and transcode to MPEG4 files. I would like to get this working as well as I can. Does this look good? What about all the failed loads and things. Sometimes it says my system is too slow to play and it's a 2.8ghz 800mhz fsb with 1024megs.

are you trying to watch tv, or something else?

I'm going to be converting old VHS tapes to mpeg files and editing/compressing them from there.

I will use mplayer to preview the tape and cat to make the file. Unless anyone has a better suggestion.

Can I play the device video0 over the LAN if I shared the /dev folder? I know of video lan - this option just occurred to me.
