analog video in

    hello, can i use analogique video input with jitter. i know it works with usb or firewire, but i'm not so happy with resolution, so i'd rather use a mini analog cam....is that possible, if yes with what object. thanx for any help kranky

      Same object as with usb or firewire, kranky. jit.qt.grab/jit.dx.grab (Windows only) is your friend here, assuming that you have a video card with an analog input.

      Thanx for the answer jb, i was hoping for such a solution... if i used a web cam...what brand should i get for best resolution...i know some are not compatible with open GL...i tried the Winvdig, the free one, and only got colored lines, so i bought the vdig and now it works when i use the mini dv camera but the image quality is not good. i use win XP. even if i insert the resolution 720x576 in jit.qt.grab , and in jit.pwindow, the resolution is shit. i will try with mini analog cam that i just ordered and should receive soon...(resolution 640x480)
      i'm still looking for a larger image with live input...any suggestion? thanx kranky

      with a dtop, you can get a digitizer card. I have a Radeon All In Wonder (AIW) 9800 and it is pretty decent, though it has high latency. There are a ton of PVR (personal video recorder) and security video digitizers out there, some more suitable than others, probably. For the mac, I recently got a Miglia card, and it has very low latency. It's mac only, but maybe some research would turn up the chipset they use, and there might be a windows compatible card like it.
      use jit.qx.grab, and then you dont' have to deal w/ vdig or whatever.

      The miglia works really great, but if make sure you haven't one of the new G5 with PCI-Express inside, the alchemy TV is only PCI-X, at least for now.
      Best, ej

      Don't know if offering items for sale is discouraged on this board, but I have an extra Miglia PCI card that I'd be happy to sell cheap. I tried to run 2 of them with a powerbook and a Magma 2 slot expansion chassis but could never get the system to boot consistently (lots of kernel panics) and I stupidly threw away the receipt and packaging. One of the cards in Magma chassis works well though and two in a tower also works.
      Anyone interested let me know: pgreyson@pacbell.net.
