Firewire Camcorder as Security Camera
« on: October 19, 2009, 03:45:16 pm »
I have an old Sony camcorder with a firewire interface that I would like to use as a security camera. Provided it's possible to stream DV across the camera's firewire port, should LMCE be able to accept and display this video stream?

Basically, a DCE device will need to be written that responds to Get Video Frame commands. A single JPEG image needs to be returned each time this command is fired.
