    Record Video Input

    I'm trying to convert some old home movies. I have an old bt848 video capture card that works out of the box with TVtime. However, TVtime doesn't have a record feature.

    I understand that VLC should be able to do this but I'm confused by the settings.

    Is there any easy way to do this?

    It's weird how projects get put off...

    Got it working today! I don't know why this works.

    Open VLC > Open Media > Open Capture Device, default settings for Video for Linux 2 > Push Play

    Turn on Advanced Controls via View menu (for the Record button).

    Then open TV Time and the picture shows up in VLC. IDK. I can close TV Time and it all still works.

    Que up video. Push Record on VLC. Push Play on camera.

    Video is saved to ~/Video directory with an awesome name.
