    Capturing Video with Kino


    I have Kino software installed, but am not able to capture video from my camcorder. I read on a website that i have to configure my firewire card using these commands as root.

    # modprobe raw1394
    # modprobe ohci1394
    # modprobe video1394

    I did that as root, but nothing happened when i typed them, theres probably something to the modprobe command that I don't know about. I believe I have all the requirements installed.

    Anybody help?

    Nothing is supposed to happen if you modprobe for something. No output is the sign of the module having been successfully loaded.

    However, I haven't ever had a coputer with firewire, so I can't offer you any specific help on getting it working.

    Kino gives me this message.

    The IEEE 1394 subsystem is not loaded;
    all IEEE 1394 options are disabled.


    If that helps elaborate more, I'm still all ears lol.

    Here's the trick...

    You're getting close...

    Try this command next:

    chmod o+rw /dev/raw1394

    Type the command in as root to allow perms for IEEE 1394.

    Hope this helps.
