I'm tossing it your way. I'm trying to stream video into Gem using
pix_video_ds. I got this working on another rig earlier today, which had a
video capture card w/ a firewire port. However, the firewire port I'm using
on my laptop is integrated into the motherboard, rather than being a
dedicated video firewire port. The error I get is something like "no video
capture device." Of course I get that in VirtualDub too, so the issue isn't
Gem, but my firewire. I looked at the manufacturer websites for my laptop,
the laptop's mainboard, and the graphic chip (same as the mainboard) and
found nothing. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is some generic
firewire driver I can install that will cover video capture (VFW?) for this
firewire port. My motherboard is an SiS w/ a 740+961 chipset and I'm trying
to do this all under WinXP Pro. Thanks in advance for any help.
