TV Capture card Support Suggestion needed

Post by babinlonston » Fri Nov 07, 2014 2:44 pm

I have upgraded my Hardware with Intel 87RL motherboard and Intel i5-4670 Processor. Now i have installed Linux mint 17 Qiana as usual what i do. Now i have a 320 GB hard disk which holds my mint operating system. I'am planning to buy a Blackmagic Intensity Pro capture card or avermedia TV capture card and msata 250GB for windows dual-boot. Blackmagic supports Mac Osx i don't have idea whether it supports Linux. While i buy the msata and tv capture card how can i make them dual boot ?. Because i have already installed mint in 320 and while i'am installing windows in msata 250GB sure there will be some booting issue due to boot loader write. If there is any capture card compatible to Linux mint with HD 1080p in Indian market let me know if so i don't need to install windows. Only reason i have to use windows because avermedia capture card supports windows there is not driver available for Linux as manufacture have mentioned in official site.

These are the Capture card what i need.

Do not ralay in posters and bloggers. I bought avermedia hdmi hd pro. The forums said that it is good supported in linux, but when i got it i saw only a big windowс logo on it. No linux drivers, no ideas.
Go to the manufacturer's site and see if the card is linux supported.

For some reason I can't get on my normal linux forum account, anyway... I've really been hitting the ground hard on this issue as well. I've delved deep into ffmpeg, tried to figure out exactly what equipment I need to get my streaming and capture setup working. After quite a lot of time, I'm a lot more knowledgable about ffmpeg (it's always kind of been on my bucket list of tech skills) but no closer to being able to live stream a screen from one machine to another smoothly, to multiple screens/boxes, and/or to a private shared broadcast. I've had a little success with multicast UDP, but far from perfect.

I am going to be getting a splitter and a vid capture device (perhaps a tuner). The main issue is HDCP (no, I'm not pirating, I like to buy my movies, thank you, but yes, I do think HDMI DRM is a waste of time and causes far more problems for people just trying to do what they want with their equipment than it solves). To add some substance to "go to the manufacturer website" comment, some things I've found:

Happauge appears to actively support a few lines of capture/tuner products for Linux:
http://www.hauppauge.com/site/support/s ... linux#more

MythTV is a pretty expansive resource on all things video/capturing/streaming on Linux. I only just discovered this so know little about how effective it is. It also seems to have some outdated man page.

IPTV Encoders as a Capture Device
https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/IPTV_Encode ... imitations

Magewell, like Hauppage, offers a long list of support tools for Linux:
http://www.magewell.com/downloads

Blackmagic Intensity (your pick) offers linux drivers and support, kedenlive is preconfigured to work with Blackmagic, they are slightly more affordable than the magewell and happauge USB3 units. I read positive and negative stories about all these major brands, so I'm at a loss myself.

Not related to a cap card but useful maybe:
Ffmpeg and avconv can do anything if you actually know what you're doing, and believe me, I don't.
Some useful things found in the tidal wave of FFMPEG muddled manual:

All about communicating with devices, streaming, good encoding docs
https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-devices.html#avfoundation
https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/StreamingG ... ernallinks
https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/H.264

Sonnati's very helpful FFMPEG guide, slightly dated

Please feel free to offer advice or tell me this didn't help.
