We have three Canon XHA1 which we want to use for recording.
I don't know exactly why someone chose these cameras but now i have to fix it.
the cameras are built into a room so i dont work with tapes.
the cameras are connected via firewire and i can capture e.g. using flash live encoder
when cameras are set to SD (DV). I would like to do that for HDV, too.
Problem is that Live Encoder wont capture HDV from that camera.
the only tool working properly, every time i want to capture a test situation
is HDVSplit. The only Problem is the big file size.
Is there a way to capture the HDV from Firewire and encode it on the fly to a smaller file, for example FLV ?
that would be awsome.
Each camera is connected to an own PC (Win/Ubuntu)

Thread: Capturing Problems
i did. somehow its not possible to do that.
it would be wonderful. maybe i just have not found a way.
i found a way using ubuntu:
dvgrab -format mpeg2 -buffer 300 - | ffmpeg -deinterlace -f mpegts -i - -f flv -vcodec flv -s 1920x1080 -aspect 16:9 -qscale 3.5 -acodec libmp3lame -ab 32k -ar 22050 timestamp.flv
until now thats the only way to get fullHD live recording directly to an flv for me.
i hope there is something more comfortable.
edit: just tried vlc again: streaming working on win7 64bit
but until now no encoding
