Default Video capture

Does NVIDIA have any plans to support video capture in
their binary drivers?

Thank you.

This is not really nvidia's business lots of card builders added this feature themselves. You can find opensource tvin support at rivatv.sf.net but it isn't guaranteed to work.

Unfortunately the rivatv driver does not work along with nvidia's driver.

If i wanted to capture video i'd have to use the 'nv' driver, which i can't
use because AGPGART does not support my VIA 8x AGP chipset on
my Asus A7V600 motherboard.

Would be nice if NVIDIA allowed or supported the rivatv driver
to run along with their binary drivers.

To anyone viewing this post:

I've configured rivatv with the 'nvidia' accellerated driver, and both worked.

What doesn't work together is rivatv and framebuffer.

First the problems that exist with rivatv is that both the nvidia driver and rivatv don't like each other much as both try to access the videocard at the same time. For non-smp systems rivatv works a bit but in case of a smp system it doesn't work together with the nvidia drivers. Further these days the nvidia drivers (1.0-61xx) prevents other drivers from accessing the card.

Ahh...you didn't mention smp previously!

My system was running with a single processor, the nvidia driver, and rivatv.

One thing I noticed...if I started rivatv at startup, it somehow messed with access to the hardware clock. So in order for me to use the rivatv, i had to su and modprobe rivatv. My next step was to determine how to get rivatv to load after the clock.

Did you happen to post your problem to the maintainer? He's very good at replying with possible solutions.

Note that myself I don't have any tvin capable hardware so I have never used rivatv.

I know a bit what the issue is with the latest driver version and know a possible solution but haven't contacted them yet. Currently the latest nvidia driver doesn't let other drivers register the videocard. What can be done is to make rivatv dependant on the nvidia kernel module, so it can use /dev/nv* to access the nvidia card and work around the problems.
