Nice work! It's better then pervious one, no doubt :)
HOWEVER. Probably since I have almost no mencoder experience I have no
idea how to enable audio encoding. I tried:
mencoder -tv on:driver=v4l:width=384:height=288:outfmt=rgb24:norm=PAL \
-oac mp3lame -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -o /tmp/tv.avi
The result AVI file does not contain any audio, since mplayer said when
I played /tmp/tv.avi:
AVI_NI: No Audio stream found... ->nosound
AVI: No Audio stream found... ->nosound
And mencoder dumps a tons of messages till encoding:
Invalid frame duration value ( nan/ nan => nan). Defaulting to 0.040 sec.
(and sometimes very strange fast-motion effects ;-)
If I specify noaudio as a -tv suboption no more these messages though no
audio either of course :) [playing speed is correct though]
Another interesting information: mencoder mutes volume setting of TV card,
at least it's on 0% when launching fbtv after a mencoder try.
It's a Pinnacle PCTV Studio card with standard Linux 2.4.18 v4l drivers.
