Kino-1.3.4 Not working Properly

Hi,
I have been using Kino for quite some time now. Recently I have found the following problems with it:

1. In the 'Eport' portion, the 'MPEG" tab is non-functional- it is completely dimmed.
2. An imported clip does not play properly in the Preview Window - it just runs away to the end without any sound.

I have been to google, all over various websites including openSUSE, with which I work on my laptop. Very many people, on various websites, have the same problems as I but, to-date, no solutions have been forthcoming.

Could anyone help please?

Thanks & Regards

Randhir Phagura

Can Kino capture HD

Hello Dan,


I am Mettavihari from Sri Lanka,
You may not remember me but I have been using your kino and was on the kino list some years ago.
I have been using Kino in combination with Cinelerra for all my video work over the past 6-8 years,
(approx 1000 hours of finished video per year.) for my 2 television channels.

I am now planing to start a separate channel in HD and have gotten cameras and mixers to handle that part.
In the past HD  was not possible in Kino & Cinelerra  but the situation may now be different.

It now looks like dvgrab and Cinelerra can handle HD.
Does this also mean that Kino can capture HD.

Please send me a few of  your recommendation for my HD production.
I need to produce about 1000 hours in 2013 for this channel,
which will be consisting of News, and Documentaries.

Thank you for all the support you have given to Kino and Cinelerra over the past years.

Regards
Mettavihari

Import a whole bunch of dv files?

I have over 100 DV files (scenes) that need to be imported to Kino. 

Importing them one by one will take forever (maybe longer).

Is there a way to bulk import a bunch of DV files into Kino?

Thank you

mini dvd

Hi,
I'm brand new to kino.
I would use it to just make a linear one DVD of my numerous miniDVD
(of my child ... of course;-) )
Because of, 'til now, I already have about 20 miniDVD that are "fated"
to be loose. I would to that work, before :-)

do you think Kino is the right tool?

TIA

Wow, that is a DVCPRO-HD camera! That is rather high end for the Linux
video editing crowd. So, you can not expect many people to be in a
position to help out. This camera uses the P2 SD card system; it seems
like you should be able to mount the camera as a hard drive over USB
and simply copy the video files from it. Then, I think you should be
able to edit the video with programs such as Kdenlive, OpenShot,
Flowblade, or PiTiVi.

sorta solved: "AVC Status: Unknown state" on recent kernels

	Hello,
just for the record: kino-1.3.4 rebuilt against libdc1394 at
least fix the tape rewinding in capture mode -- this message
on console log still stays:

AVC Status: Unknown state

as well as somewhat weird control buttons behaviour (sort of
blinking and sporadic timer resets)
    *but*
at least the "rewind all the way back" works for me again :)

The breakage came after updating from a distribution branch
with 2.6.32 based kernel to the current one with 3.0.[68]
(there was at least one 2.6.32 out there packaged using the
former IEEE1394 stack back then).

Just in case, attaching the Gentoo patch for the bundled ffmpeg
to be built with v4l2 (since 2.6.38, see also debian #621996).

I'm considering re-training parents to use kdenlive but that's
rather a winter project, and legacy SMIL files are to be still
processable somehow...

Can I recover the dvgrab output for a clip if not saved when captured?

Guys,

   I have completed my 54 tape capture with dvgrab resulting in 1206 clips and 
656G of video. I have about 10 clips where I missed saving the dvgrab output and 
I need to know if I can get that information back from the clips themselves? 
The script I wrote saved the following dvgrab output:

"dcrv-2009.04.03_22-53-49.dv":   520.94 MiB  4552 frames timecode 00:02:32.23 
date 2009.04.03 23:52:46
"dcrv-2009.04.04_00-54-15.dv":   814.02 MiB  7113 frames timecode 00:06:29.05 
date 2009.03.16 14:02:13
"dcrv-2009.04.02_20-27-19.dv":   628.51 MiB  5492 frames timecode 00:09:32.13 
date 2009.04.02 20:30:22
<snip>

   I am creating a mysql table that will store the filename, size, frames, 
timecode, date & time info and provide the ability to add descriptive 
information about the clips as well as other fields for kid1, kid2, backup 
location, etc....

   I have one tape I captured and did NOT save this information. Is there 
something in kino or another command line utility that can retrieve this 
information from the captured clips? Thanks.

dvcont rewind - any way to tell when done other than looping on 'dvcont status' exit status?

Dan, All,

   dvcont works fine, but it certainly isn't serial in processing commands. From 
the man page, 'dvcont <command1> [ <command2> ... ]', I thought 'dvcont rewind 
eject' would rewind -- then eject. But when I saw the tape eject immediately, I 
knew that was a no-go.

   It seems simple "hey dummy, just look at the camcorder", but the camcorder is 
hooked to a remote box and dvgrab/dvcont operations are done over ssh so knowing 
when the rewind is done is something more than just looking at the camcorder. 
What I've done is just run dvcont status and check for the "Winding reverse" or 
"Winding stop" status to determine when the rewind completes:

(stat=$(dvcont status); while [[ $stat != "Winding stop" ]]; do sleep 10; 
stat=$(dvcont status); done)

   Works fine, but if there is an easier way, I'd appreciate a suggestion. Thanks.

dvgrab starts play, but stays stuck "Waiting for DV...", no data is actually captured - how to check?

Guys,

   I am having a problem with dvgrab not downloading data to disk from my 
Digital8 camera, even though dvgrab can always properly control the camera. This 
problem only occurs sometimes on my first call to dvgrab. I then usually just 
have to kill dvgrab, unplug/re-plug the firewire cable and start dvgrab again. 
It works fine then.

   The firewire connection is always seen on plug-in:

Sep 24 21:21:18 archangel kernel: [2111415.165895] firewire_core: phy config: 
card 0, new root=ffc1, gap_count=5
Sep 24 21:21:18 archangel kernel: [2111415.800050] firewire_core: created device 
fw1: GUID 08004601017ede99, S100
<no download - unplug/re-plug>
Sep 24 21:33:54 archangel kernel: [2112171.169381] firewire_core: phy config: 
card 0, new root=ffc1, gap_count=5
Sep 24 21:33:57 archangel kernel: [2112174.926294] firewire_core: created device 
fw1: GUID 08004601017ede99, S100, 1 config ROM retries

   As mentioned, the camera is always found and dvgrab can ALWAYS control it 
(rewind, play, etc..) The problem I'm dealing with is when dvgrab starts 'play' 
to begin the capture - sometimes there is no capture, nothing recorded to disk, 
even though dvgrab has started the 'play' mode on the camera just fine. I watch 
the indication on the camera and play begins and the tape counter on the camera 
starts increasing normally, but dvgrab is still "Waiting for DV..."

   The indication I get on whether there is a successful download started is 
that dvgrab issues the "Capture Started" message when download begins. For the 
times when the camera is put in play mode and nothing is downloaded, dvgrab just 
sits there with the "Waiting for DV..." message (even though dvgrab has rewound 
the tape and started the camera playing). In either case, dvgrab will play 
though the entire tape before exiting... (roughly an hour +- 5 minutes)

   I am using the following command line to start dvgrab. I just echo the date 
so I have a reference for when I started the download so I know to check back in 
an hour to switch tapes and start it again. (the first "Capture Started" message 
is mine from the CLI [poor choice of words]) The second "Capture Started" 
message is the one issued by dvgrab. I run dvgrab in a subshell so that any 
error messages from the dvgrab stderr stream are logged in the correct order and 
don't get intertwined with any messages from the tee stderr stream (not that 
I've ever had any from tee). The download/no download issue occurs regardless of 
whether you run dvgrab in a subshell.

10:37 archangel:/dat_e/dv/new> (echo -e "\nCapture Started: $(date '+%b %e 
%T')\n"; dvgrab -rewind -timestamp -autosplit=3600 -format raw dcrv- 2>&1) | tee 
-a /dat_e/dv/capture.log

Capture Started: Sep 26 10:37:52

Found AV/C device with GUID 0x08004601017ede99
Waiting for DV...
Capture Started   <== this is the dvgrab message
"dcrv-1999.12.24_17-11-33.dv":   999.98 MiB  8738 frames timecode 00:04:51.18 
date 1999.12.24 17:24:26
"dcrv-1999.12.24_17-24-26.dv":   656.78 MiB  5739 frames timecode 00:08:03.05 
date 1999.12.24 18:14:28
<snip>

   I need to find a way to test for the successful "Capture Started" from within 
a BASH script to make sure I haven't started dvgrab to just waste an hour 
playing the tape with nothing captured to disk. One thing I guess I could do is 
to wait for 3-4 minutes after starting dvgrab and then check for the "Capture 
Started" message -- but frankly, I'm unclear how I would do that from within a 
script since processing in the script is waiting for dvgrab to finish?? Any 
ideas on how to do this would be welcomed. I don't know, maybe start a timer in 
the script before the dvgrab call that waits 5 minutes, checks for the "Capture 
Started" and if not found, kills the dvgrab PID and issues an error?? I'll have 
to dig more into BASH to figure that one out. Any thoughts here welcomed :)

   Anybody have any idea why dvgrab would rewind and start 'play' mode and still 
be stuck "Waiting for DV..." and never get to the "Capture Started" point?
