Capturing to DV video

  • I am having problems getting xvidcap to capture to DV video (to boost performance as it will require less encoding obviously than xvid). I changed the codec to DV, audio to PCM at 48khz, but I get this when pressing the record button:

    andrew@andrewdesktop:~$ xvidcap
    [dv @ 0x840cf94]Can't initialize DV format!
    Make sure that you supply exactly two streams:
         video: 25fps or 29.97fps, audio: 2ch/48Khz/PCM
         (50Mbps allows an optional second audio stream)
    Output #0, dv, to 'file:///home/andrew/test-0000.avi':
      Stream #0.0: Video: dvvideo (hq), yuv420p, 192x144, q=3-3, 200 kb/s, 25.00 fps(c)
      Stream #0.1: Audio: pcm_s16le, 48000 Hz, stereo, 1536 kb/s
    xtoffmpeg.c xvc_ffmpeg_save_frame(): Could not write header for output file (incorrect codec paramters ?) ... aborting

    If someone could please help me out? Thankyou.
