I can think of another drawback: The smi driver is depending on the saa module. For the stk based EasyCAPs exists another article on this wiki with further information. Cliques are a hard problem to beat and generally impossible , we can see so many examples of this screwing projects over. Can you provide the contents of that file from your server? They ended with Markus submitting some code which made non-backwards compatible changes to that code something some of the other developers didn’t like ; one of them proposed a simple change that would add better backwards compatibility, but Markus basically said “take it as it is or leave it”.

There have been a couple of approaches to solve the technical problem to share 1 component between analog and digital TV the tuner back then.
How To Properly Install USB Easycap Device In Ubuntu
STK based devices are supported video and audio under Empka by the easycap kernel module kernel 2. The first poster explains what they did to get the captue device to work here I quote; I have EzCap working on Ubuntu Here’s the correct one: Both upstream and the 4 duplicated drivers have similar functionality.
The sad story of the em28xx driver Posted Nov 27, So let’s start and add it here: Maybe Jon’s article can be the crystallization point for everybody to take a step back and go on a path of compromise instead of confrontation hope springs eternal, I know If someone looks at the audio driver, and the patches for the audio driver it’s the code I’ve written, bugfixes to read for the videoframes the same story but never taking into account all the devices which were supported by the em28xx driver which I worked on constantly.
However, the solution that made it work for a single time is not working for me any time.
While Markus was working on his own version of the code, others were putting patches into the mainline em28xx driver. The device is not faulty because it works on Windows, so Linux is the problem. linkx
The sad story of the em28xx driver
New device Mbps eb1a: The ownership of the em28xx driver, I have a couple of devices here and I know what’s required to get those things work, there are also some requirements about backward compatibility.
Just to make sure that it was not the usb device that it was failing, I tested the same with another device with the same chip. Skip to content Loading So it would seem that everybody’s interests are served by getting those drivers into kinux mainline tree. Thanks for the device I’ve been using it with a dell laptop running windoze xp and it captures video and audio perfectly.
There are a lot of shall we describe them as “clones” of the easycap device without drivers, which is why the original company changed its brand to ezcap to stop counterfeiters. Posted Nov 12, 0: You could try running the windows driver through wine.
Ok I acknowledge that is what’s wanted and how it should be done.
This one also seemed to fail to meet kernel code quality standards last time I checked, mainly due to incorporating large chunks of dmpia code. With the ezcaP connected to my eeepc, uname -a command shows; Linux 3. So the user-space approach, like its predecessor, was not merged.
At times, Markus tried to block those changes. First of all let’s start at the beginning and not in the middle of everything.
drivers – Video capture with eMPIA chip not working – Ask Ubuntu
Markus The sad story of the em28xx driver. Regardless of the camera being connected to the USB device or not, I get the same image. If you are abusing developers’s and users’s trust it becomes suddenly much harder to integrate code in kernel.
Slides from talk describing setup for reverse-engineering what does the hardware do are available: The sad story of the em28xx driver Posted Nov 17, My first approach was limited to a specific parameter setting which only allowed to receive some TV channels, I realized that and started over again digging further into the V4L and DVB framework.
