hey gunter,

...for GEM, [pix_video] works fine with dv signals, either with a  
camera plugged in directly, or a dazzle hollywood dv bridge (which I  
use for converting older Hi8 camera signals)...the only limitations  
that come to mind are that we've never been able to fully integrate  
the sequence grabber control panel, which means we can't adjust  
brightness, contrast, etc., in the process of actually grabbing the  
data...perhaps some day...

...for pdp, pidip has basically a clone of [pix_video] called  
[pdp_ieee1394]...there's a major limitation to the version in cvs  
that has the destructor disabled, which means you have to restart pd  
to use it after the object is destroyed...I have a fix, and have  
offered yves the patch, but despite his claims of openness, he has  
declared me not "open-source", for whatever that's worth ;-\
