I'm currently trying to hook up xjadeo to take LTC input over the audio in jack. I found a sample LTC .wav file that is about 25 sec. long that I'm playing on an external device through the audio in. I can't figure out how to get xjadeo to detect that and sync to it. Thanks!
Which Operating system? Which version of xjadeo ? where are you stuck?
on GNU/Linux: start `xjadeo -l video-file` and a jack-audio port will appear that understands LTC. You can also use the qjadeo GUI and select Menu->Sync->LTC (JACK).
Play the LTC file e.g. with `mplayer -ao jack ltc.wav` and connect mplayer to xjadeo's LTC in.
If it does not react: try `xjadeo -l -verbose -i3 <video-file>` option: It may be that the timecode in the LTC is past the end of your video-file.
If there's no output, please post or upload the LTC file. xjadeo is known to work fine with LTC audio generated from some cameras, some keyboards and test-sounds made with libltcsmpte.
Well, actually LTC + xjadeo is currently working correctly only @ 25fps - xjadeo-0.6.0-rc7 that is.
Thanks for the heads up. I'll see if I can come up with a fix and also add a short section to the manual soon.
FWIW: I just generated two LTC audio samples for testing and will provide more later:
Some test-movies (every video-frame stamped with a visual timecode) can be found here:
I've just fixed LTC parsing for framerates other than 25fps. So far only in the git-scm. Source and binary packages as well as documentation will follow in the next days.
few hints (I'll add those to the manual):
* run jackd at low latency (recommended: 64 fpp) -
* increase xjadeo's screen-update frequency (xjadeo -f 150 <file-name>) to prevent it from skipping frames.
