I had this up and running just before I went to supper. Could not figure
how to make it reconize my video capture card.

Have this but it did not show up in a search using 'apropos'.

Have this. Been working most of the day trying to get it to access my
video capture card.

This is the third flavor of linux I have tried to run Cinelerra on and
still have not been successful.
Transcode: I don't need to edit anything. What I need to do is take the
image from my camera and give it directly to you over the internet.
My camera is a Sony Hi8 camcorder. No USB. My TV capture card is
Hauppage Win. Uses 'bttv' driver. I have 2 computers with Sempron 1.6
CPUs and 1 gig memory chips. I have a 200gig HD I can install in 1 if
needed. Sound will be added later when I get the video tested.
I have had success with 'camstream' and 'webcam'. But they can only
upload an image every 1 second and that looks kind of jerky.
If you were going to use transcode, how would you construct your command

As I stated above, this needs to pass as straight through as possible.
Thanks for your feedback.
