    Video Recording - CentOS 6.4 (Minimal)


    I have an EasyCAP DC60 and a CentOS 6.4 (minimal) system running on the network like a NAS Drive.

    Is it possible to set up my “NAS Drive” to record video? Streaming to my Windows laptop would be a bonus so I can check on its progress.

    I can easily do this on my Windows laptop however I have a lot of old video tapes I wish to recover and do not want my laptop tied down whilst its converting hours upon hours of old home movies.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    You can do this, but you need a video transcoding device that can take the video output of your video playback machine and convert it to some normal format (mpeg) over USB or other means that your computer can handle. I assume you have such (I do for the same reason). That should allow a tool such as ffmpeg to take the input and convert/store it to files on the hard drive. You can easily open a shell connection from Windows to the Linux system with ssh or telnet and use that to start and monitor the recording process.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
