    software to grab video from analogic camera?

    i've been using kino to grab from digital camera with firewire,
    but now the company has bought an analogic one and i can't edit the videos made with it
    cause i don't know how to capture the images.
    kino uses dvgrab tha captures from firewire only..?
    which software i need to grab from s-video?

    You probably need a capture card and video capture software. TV Time, KDE TV, XdTV, or XawTV would probably do the job.

    ok, i have an video capture board, pinnacle system
    so i instaled xawtv but it won't open, here is the error message:
    This is xawtv-3.95, running on Linux/i686 (
    can't open /dev/video0: No such device
    v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
    v4l2: open /dev/video0: Dispositivo inexistente
    v4l2: open /dev/video0: Dispositivo inexistente
    v4l: open /dev/video0: Dispositivo inexistente
