Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I just added it for open as well as 
create when PAL. While looking into this, I noticed QuicktimeForLinux and 
libquicktime(.sf.net) have diverged with respect to DV fourcc coverage. Q4L 
defines QUICKTIME_DV25 as well as QUICKTIME_DVSD, but not lqt's quicktime.h. 
Meanwhile,  lqt defines QUICKTIME_DV_AVID and QUICKTIME_AVID_A (which 
corresponds to dvcp). Not a big deal, but just thought I'd mention it.

Lucky for you to own such a lovely new camera! This is an HDV camera, and HDV 
is actually MPEG-2 video codec and MPEG-2 Transport Stream format and not DV 
codec and stream format. That is a very big difference, and Kino is a humble 
DV-only editor. I do not plan to change that anytime in the near future due 
to coming-of-age of other more ambitious projects.

So, how in the hell did you capture HDV with dvgrab? That does not make sense. 
Most people capture HDV with test-mpeg2 that comes with libiec61883 or 
mpg1394grab. Can you explain what options you used with dvgrab and how you 
validated the capture worked OK?

As for editing HDV, I recommend to give Cinelerra a shot. I have not used it 
for that, but I have some same format footage captured from my cable box, and 
I will try it sometime--borken lib dependency stopping from trying it right 
now :-(.

sorry, I forgot to say i was using this camera DV mode, this way i can easily
capture from dvgrab but can't capture with kino, neither export, obviously.

(i'm running kino from kino-0.8.1 tarball on amd64 debian inestable)

when i start capture kino freezes, and that's what appears in the shell behind:

dmesg gives me:

Kino 0.9.0 released

Kino 0.9.0 Release Notes
http://www.kinodv.org/

* Bugfixes to Export as a result of resampling changes in v0.8.1.

* Added third generation, simplified IEEE 1394 I/O via libiec61883.
  (dv1394 is still available when libiec61883 is not detected at configure
  step of build process. Also, one can force the usage of dv1394 rather
  than libiec61883 by using configure --with-dv1394.)

NOTE: some build configure options have changed slightly:
Use --enable-quicktime instead of --with-quicktime.
Use --enable-hotplug-script-dir instead of --with-....
Use --enable-hotplug-usermap-dir instead of --with-....

OK, I was hoping to learn if the problem happens when switching to Capture 
mode or when clicking the Capture button in Capture mode. I will assume you 
mean simply going into Capture mode since that is where most people have 
problems when problems exist.

This is bad. This indicates something wrong happening in the hardware perhaps 
as a result of bad driver behavior. I have a hard time believing it is result

Is libiec61883 the preferred 1394 linux driver? Don't I 
remember that libiec61883 was meant for pro-grade cams, and 
dv1394 for comsumer-grade - like the panasonic I have?

Do all cams work with libiec61883? What character device is 
used?

I've looked at www.linux1394.org and didn't see much. Am I 
looking in the wrong places, as usual?

Thanks for all the great work on kino!

Site looks wrong in konqueror

Hi all,

I got a new DV camera and am delighted to see it working out of the box with 
kino. Kino is really simple. Excellent work!

The website however looked very strange in my web browser, Konqueror, they 
layout is bad and the PayPal link is there. The errors are only a few simple 
ones:

- The xml tag must start at the beginning of line 1; remove the two empty 
lines
at the start.

- A number of unterminated <span>; replace </small> with </span>

- A nested comment which XML does not allow with confused the browser. This 
what really messes up the layout and content.

- Duplicate ID's, not sure what the consequence is.
