We can't open much about our internal projects here at IDEIA. But now that University students and and professors, our main customers are on vacation, we have more time to spend on some internal projects which were put aside during the year.
One of them, in cooperation with the IDEIA's Optics Lab, is related to digitize images captured with a regular composite video camera. The guy from the Optics Lab have a EasyCAP USB device, which I have to put to work with my linux box.
I didn't find an out of the box solution, or a few steps tutorial to put it to work during the year. Looking again, I've found a couple of forums, tutorials, and links:
I hope these might be useful to others trying to make this EasyCAP thing work with Linux.
