Hi, everyone.
Can anyone tell me how to capture video with xine?
I followed the README in atsc-dvb-tools which said not to use xine-hd but to instead compile xine-lib with the added patch. All went well. Currently I can watch analog tv with tvtime by pointing it to either /dev/dvb/adapter0 or by using the v4l driver at /dev/video0. However, niether work with xine. i.e. by using '$xine dtv://' or '$xine v4l://' , simply all I get is an error that says something to the effect, 'no input to handle dtv:// check malformed mrl'. Anyway, is there something simple I am missing. Also if I simply run xine and click on dvb button, I get same error.
"There is no input plugin available to handle 'dvb://' Maybe MRL syntax is wrong or file/stream source doesn't exist"
by click more...
the relevant messages are...
xine: cannot find input plugin for MRL [dvb:// ]
xine: input plugin cannot open MRL [dvb:// ]
xine: found input plugin: DVB (Digital TV) input plugin

Thanks in advance for any help!

I don't know about using xine to capture video, I just use "azap" and "cat", as described under the header "Creating the $HOME/.azap/channels.conf" in this document:
