Reading S-Video signal

Mon Apr 07, 2014 9:34 am

What is the best way for a raspberry pi to read a S-Video signal. Got a cam with no other interface then that and have no clue how to read it.

Thanks in advance. :-)

If a python knocks on your door and says “Hi, I’m a vacuum cleaner!” it’s not true. That’s a python.

You'll need a video capture device i.e. http://raspberry-at-home.com/video-grab ... pberry-pi/

Don't expect high frame rates the Pi doesn't handle uncompressed video streams very well.

Thanks for the reply. I've tried with a easycap but got a distorted image. Do you know where I could find a usb input device with (for example) STK1160 chipset that makes a ok picture? I have no worries about framerate. If I get i pic every 5 seconds, Im ok with that. :-)
