#3608, "Kino 1.3.3 does not record video in Ubuntu 9.10"


          

Hi.

I have kino running under 64-bits Karmic Koala and I am trying to
capture a video stream from my Canon MV890 camera.

The camera is detected correctly, and I get a perfect in the preview.
I also manage to take still pictures and write them to file.

When I try to capture the stream, however, Kino claims that it is
capturing, but the time stands still on 00:00:00:000. When I
eventually press the stop button a 00:00:00:040s film is added to the
story board. If I repeat the process, a new film with the same size
is added. These files are 144000 bytes long.

dvgrab captures my films nicely.

Any hints?

By the way, anyone knows how to get rid of the effects (rotating cube,
sphere, blurring, etc) from the preview?

Paal

Ditto for me

When I try, the Kino status bar has a countdown from ten to zero "Waiting for DV 10 ...", then briefly shows "Capture failed" before going back to "AV/C Controls Enabled". The countdown takes about 8-9sec. Nothing appears in the storyboard, no files are created, nothing, other than everything appearing normal in the preview.

Did you do anything during setup or configuring to get that to work? I'm also running Karmic 64bit, but have managed to capture/grab zero digital video so far, using either dvgrab or Kino.

Hello!
After reading several articles on Ubuntu and its Firewire
issues I found a method to get Kino capturing DV in Ubuntu
9.10 64 bit on an Acer Travelmate 4400.
I wrote a script that works ok if you connect the camera and
start it in replay mode before running the script.
The skript goes:

#!/bin/sh
sudo chmod 777 /dev/raw1394
echo “welcome”
kino

Save as kinoscript.sh and give permission to run as program.

I'm not certatin that the "echo..." line is
neccesary, but I started out from the samplescript.sh and it
looks nice and friendly.

Kino is only capturing one frame. You are not the first report this, but I have not been able to reproduce it, and I am not longer maintaining Kino. At least you know dvgrab works, have a workaround, and it will work in Kdenlive since it runs dvgrab as a child. (Kino does not share; it shares code with dvgrab, but they grew apart a little bit over time.)
