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:
[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.
take a look here:
The bug itself is fixed, but you still need some very specific parameters and capture sizes as detailed in the bug. Also, you might be surprised regarding performance because you need fps 25 etc.
