Release Notes: This version uses a separate thread for handling the ieee1394 interface. This reduces the chance of dropping frames, because the camcorder data is always read with a high priority task, whereas the disk i/o is done in a different low priority task.
Release Notes: dvgrab now saves both Type-1 and Type-2 AVI files, including audio data. You can now import your camcorder data into other Linux nonlinear video editing software.
Release Notes: Support for the Type-2 AVI format (this format is used by the commercial video editing Linux software "MainActor". Note: Sound is currently available only for Type-1 AVI files.
Release Notes: Detection and file-stamping of the date and time of each recorded scene, a more robust packet assembly algorithm, and detection of NTSC or PAL without command line options.
Release Notes: A new autosplit feature: For every new recording on the tape a new AVI file is created. The program will also create new AVI files whenever the 2 GByte file size limit is reached.
