This is a short guidepost for people who come here the first time.
What this blog is about.In April 2011 I started this blog to support the usage of STK1160 based devices (EasyCAP DC60) on Linux.
If you are new to analogue capturing devices on Linux start reading on the Quickstart page.
Activate audio for the STK1160 device.
You must activate audio for the stk1160 driver in the mixer settings
- when you use your STK1160 device the first time,
- on a fresh installed/ upgraded Linux system.
Note: Only devices with builtin AC'97 chip have audio support on Linux.
Read more about the different devices on this page.
Switching the channels/ inputs while capturingIt is possible to switch from one input of the STK1160 device to another while the capturing program (e.g. mplayer) is running.
Read on this post how to switch inputs.
This might be interesting especially for people who own the four inputs model (002) and want to build up a surveillance installation.
Note: It is not possible to capture from more than one input simultaneously due to hardware limitations.
