http://ubuntuforums.org – Having trouble getting video capture card to be recognized in Ubuntu and work. Why is this such a difficult thing?? The computer with the capture card was setup as dual boot and has windows xp on it. From what I have read in the forums if you boot with windows all will work fine. Why hasn't somebody wrote code that will find the card in the machines structure, read the capture card contents and provide help with getting it setup?? I read one post about it and the member was told at the beginning that he should expect to spend two hours setting it up... it was a new card the person had jus (Hardware)
