0C45:627B: Better, But Still Problems Leo Schwab 11/13/08 12:41 PM
        Very quickly, since I'm at work:

        I pointed my git workspace at the development branch, did a
git-pull, and built it.  It finally recognized the camera:

---

        However, when I try testing it with mplayer, I get a rash of errors,
and the program quits:

Check out libv4l. (README can help.)

        Forgive me, but 'mplayer' does not appear to have a dependency on
any version of libv4l (I'm running Debian 'unstable').  What should I be
looking at/for?

There is a link with an explanation in the README under "1.3 Decoder".

To answer your question - you need to look for libv4l.

(PS: I am sorry for not answering directly - but in a way I update that
README for a reason and I need to see if people can use it.)

        RTFM: Sagacity for The Ages

        I read the README file for the microdia sources in more detail.  I
installed libv4l-0 (0.5.3-1), then read *its* README file.

        Executive Summary:  Do this:

$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l2convert.so mplayer tv:// -tv
driver=v4l2:width=640:height=480:fps=25:device=/dev/video0 -vo xv
-nojoystick

        This is some seriously ugly hackage, but at least now I have an
image.  I'll be playing with the paramater adjuster thing next.

                                        Thanks,
                                        Schwab

        Let me see if I can improve the verbiage in the README for you...

        Here's some *very* quick bashing about in the README, which I think
improves things a bit.

Thanks,
I changed a few more things that bothered me.

Anyway - most of your stuff is still in there. Please take a look at it
and tell me if it's ok.

(BTW thanks for the grammar fixes. Tenses got a bit ugly I admit.)

And hey - data loss? What do you think we do here? ;)
