    Request: Video Capture PCI Card plugin

    If i buy this card: http://cgi.ebay.com/4-CHANNEL-PCI-DV...QQcmdZViewItem
    or another card that does the same thing (dont know if there are any, please tell me if you know)

    Can someone make a plugin that support this card, so we can show and record 4 cams at once??

    I dont know if this is possible to make without the card, but if it is, it would have been great.. No point in buying this card if it cant be used with CF..

    As far as the card, I believe that is a Conexant 87* that multiplexes the 4 signals so you cut your frame rate with each camera.

    There's a variant of that card, slightly more expensive but with 4 encoders, one for each channel. Double check before you buy.

    Does nothing to do with cf... but since u seem to be rather knowledgeable about bt8x8 chipset... are u possibly aware if there exists WDM driver which allows capturing from several inputs simultaneously?

    Not really, cards like that are fairly common is all and trying to get it (or most anything) working under linux requires a bit of research.

    The only windows WDM driver I came across in my travels was

    http://btwincap.sourceforge.net/

    an open source WDM cap driver. Don't recall if it does more than one input. I think it installs multiple devices, but not sure, was awhile back.You'll have to look at the docs.

    I dont know what you are talking about (just a little bit)

    I just want to add 3-4 cameras to my Carputer, be able to view and record them, all at the same time, within CF..

    Dont know what hardware setup is the best.. I dont want to use a lot of money.. This will only be used to parking assistanse, and some small clip recording while driving av streetmeets ect..

    Can any of you help me with a setup, since you seem to have some ideas about this.. Not very expencive..

    The card should work with the upcoming version of CAM or TV plugin. I also added the ability to record from the CAM plugin to a CAM Videos folder that shows up in your library automatically.

    I do not currently have the option to record multiple sources at the same time.

    Sounds good.. A multicam show and record would be perfect..


    But, any idea for alternate setups?? Other pci cards, usb devices??
    This was just something i came over on ebay, but other ideas are wanted..

    Most cards that work in MCE and most other HTPC's should work with the new CAM and TV plugin, there are lots to choose from.

    I have no experience with any of them, so it's hard to say. If it has a WDM driver, then it should be no problem.
