I have two RCA type cams that work fine one is an old Sun the other generic.
I know they work because they have been used a long time with xawtv.
I have a capture card with 2 inputs an RCA type and an Svideo.
Again this configuration works with xawtv.
Is there a problem with some cameras being compatible with motion?
I get " Capture error calling vid_start" from one of the threads when
I have tried the options setup and debug to start it but little extra
information is provided.
Does anyone have any advice to push this to a working state?

Ok to be more blunt...
Why would motion deliver capture error for vid_start?
My assumption or guess was the input might be wrong but the default is 1 and I
get it even if I use one camera.
If I got the message others must?
This is a new install of 3.2.4!
I can find no way to get more or better info from the app.
Does it work? Any way to tell if support exists? I am using as basic a capture
as exists bt848.
Thanks for any ideas.
