#9 Crash with dv camera starts playing


Broadcast 2000 crashes when I press Play on my DV camera. I am using kernel 2.4.1 with the latest patches from linux1394.sourceforge.net. The output from broadcast2000 is:

raw1394_get_handle 1
raw1394_get_handle 1
raw1394_get_handle 2

DV capture will work on my PC, as the dvgrab utility from www.schirmacher.de/arne/dvgrab manages to capture DV AVI files that I can play back successfully.

    The 2.4.3 kernel has a revised firewire system which seems
    to work every time. To quote the documentation:

    The resolution is fixed at
    720x480 for NTSC and 720x576 for PAL.<P>

    The framerate should be 29.97 for NTSC and 25 for PAL. If
    you try a
    lower framerate you'll get noise in the picture.<P>

    Firewire also has audio recording. If you selected
    <B>firewire</B> for
    the audio input you won't record audio from a sound card but
    a digital
    stream from the firewire card. You must be using 16 bit
    48000 Hz for
    the audio.

    I get exactly this problem too. I'm using kernel 2.4.5-ac8
    with the latest CVS iee1394 drivers. I know grabbing DV
    from the camera is working fine because I can use dvgrab &
    kino and then play the files with playdv/kino/windows

    I'm using a PAL camera (Sony TRV20E) which may be upsetting
    broadcast 2000. However playdv states this about the audio
    from my camera :-

    Audio is 32.0 kHz, 12 bits quantization, 2 channels,
    emphasis off

    ie not 48KHz/16bit. I tried capturing only video but that
    fails too in the same way. I wonder whether this is the

    I can supply some raw dv captured from the camera if that
    would help.
