analog video in


    Jan 26 2006 | 8:42 pm
    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

      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

      for this project it is a desktop with jitter 1.5...could use a laptop
      though...but a powerful laptop...

      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,

      i bought one that is PCI. maybe it's discontinued, but they are still
      out there! but yes, be sure of what you are buying.

      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.
