This new version adds support for audio/video codec selection. It is now possible to choose which codec to use and edit the properties values.
Also it is now possible to record audio, even if there is no selectable parameter.
DVR 3.99.2 is a nearly complete rewrite of the older 3.2 version. As such a lots of previously existing features are still missing. It is rather a preview of what is going on the project, than a ready to use version.
DVR now uses GStreamer as a strong and reliable basis. Also new web pages are available at http://www.pierrox.net/dvr/.
More is coming soon, feedback on this development version will be appreciated :-)
Have fun !
This release feature a new window when DVR starts : it allows the user to choose the video device to use, among the auto detected devices.
This version adds a better management of video device which enables full multi-threading.
It should also fix a minor problem that prevented many user to run DVR correctly.
This release of DVR features significant improvement and bug fixes. It especially supports webcam, including a software preview for those devices which don't provide overlay video.
This version features support for variable frame rate. The user can now choose a frequency as low as 1 hertz, till full frequency (25 or 30 hertz for example). This allow to save storage space when recording very long video with few variations.
This version of the Digital Video Recorder for Linux introduces a console only version tool, suitable for batch records. This version also features a brand new video interface, which should resolve a lot of minor problems encountered by a lot of users. Some clearer documentation has also been written : see http://dvr.sourceforge.net/.
The dvr 2.7.9-2 package fixes numerous compilation problems. The avifile package is not included anymore. Users will have to recompile dvr for now.
This package includes a special avifile version. It should avoid conflicts with other versions of avifile.
DVR has upgraded to qt3.
Thanks to Denny Schierz there are now a german version of DVR. And there will be soon a french version ;-)
DVR should now catch avifile errors, and show a clear message, instead of aborting without comment.
The recording core has also been improved.
Now with streamfactory you can edit your movies in order to cut them, join them and more !
It is a command line tool with a fully configurable behaviour. See the README file inside the package.
fixed a bug about audio/video sync in case of heavy frame loss
These rpms are just for test. There are my first rpms, so they may not work...
The audio/video sync should now be kept in every situations.
It is now possible to switch between video channels without having to leave DVR and lauch another TV software.
a fullscreen mode is now available, provided that you've got a video mode corresponding to the resolution used for record.
added some checkboxes, some tests, and improved the kernel of DVR
Now a check box in the audio configuration page allow you to choose wether to record audio or not.
New GUI, new features and some minor cleanings
I'm working on a new GUI, in order to add more flexibility and to add some functionnalities.
now you can change audio device and the main video parameters are also saved.
now DVR saves parameters like width, height, file name, etc
At LAST !
DVR has now a configuration script !
