As for a framework, I'll be using GStreamer (www.gstreamer.net) since
building a PVR is one of the many reasons I started that project... As
soon as vektor (Billy Biggs) gets around to rewriting reetpvr as a set of
GStreamer elements, it'll be pretty straightforward, even possible in a
limited sense using the commandline launcher:
gst-launch v4lsrc channel=2 ! <vektor's encoder> ! filesink \
gst-launch filesrc location=movie.<whatever> ! <vektor's decoder> ! \
(or use mpeg2enc/mpeg2dec instead of vektor's codec if you have the
cycles, or rtjpegenc/rtjpegdec, or any other video codec pair we already
have plugins for, even ffmpeg)
