How to get VLC to view video from Bt878 card's S-video input

Postby nullmodem on Mon Feb 11, 2013 5:27 pm

Just installed "linuxmint-14.1-mate-dvd-32bit.iso" on a Dell PowerEdge SC420.
Mint works fine.

There a PCI tuner card in this system. lspci produces ...
Code: Select all

This Bt878 Video Capture has:
Coxial input port
S-video input port
Yellow RCA composite video input port
...

The S-video input port is connected to an old camcorder. This camcorder's S-video output works when connected to an old TV.
So I want to use VLC to view the video from this Bt878 card's S-video input port.
After googling around for how to do this with VLC, I have tried various methods but no success.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
