I'm trying to find a small USB video capture device with Linux support. I've tried the Diamond VC500 (http://www.diamondmm.com/VC500.php) because I though it had the em2820 chipset in it but the "em28xx" module doesn't seem to recognize it:
dmesg output: usb 5-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6 usb 5-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice usbcore: deregistering interface driver em28xx em28xx v4l2 driver version 0.1.0 loaded usbcore: registered new interface driver em28xx
lsusb output: Bus 005 Device 006: ID 07de:2820 Diamond Multimedia VC500 Video Capture Dongle
I'm considering the Hauppauge USB-live: http://registration.hauppauge.com/webstore/hardware2.asp?product=usblive
But can't confirm for sure Linux supports it either.
Can anyone recommend a good USB video capture device with Linux support? I don't need a TV tuner or audio.
uvc (usb video class) camera
Thanks for the response. I'm not looking for a camera I'm looking for a device with composite (RCA) video input to plug the output from an analog camera into. The Hauppauge USB-live is exactly what I'm looking for but I don't want to order another device only to find it won't work with Linux.
Is there support for the Hauppauge USB-live or a similar USB video capture dongle in the kernel?
There is a nice device from Sensoray: http://www.sensoray.com/products/2255data.htm that has good Linux support in the 2.6.27 kernel with an active developer from the company itself. I have one of these devices here and can vouch for it working well.
Don't know if 4 video source inputs is a bit more than what you are looking for though.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for the response Greg. Yeah that does look to be a little overkill for the app I'm building.
I've ordered the Hauppauge device since I see "Hauppauge WinTV USB Live (PAL B/G)" listed in CARDLIST.usbvision.
Does anyone know the status of these drivers?
I built and loaded the "tm6000" module yesterday but it didn't see the Diamond device which has a "tm5600" chip in it.
