I currently have a capture card in my PC with four available video ports. There are two cameras plugged in to the capture card. I am having problems showing both the video streams at once. The first VideoIn node lets lets me show the first video stream no problem, when I make a second VideoIn node and try to show the second video stream I can select the driver, but not a second Analog video input, so nothing shows up.
Are there any tips on how to get multiple video streams working from one capture card, or will I have to invest in a more expensive video capture card?!
My new capture card appears to only work with the software supplied by the manufacturer (when I look in the device manager the driver appears in it’s own folder called “sharebit” - not under sound, video, games controllers).
i know about IVC-100 (around 70 euro) or IVC-200 (around 120 euro)
both have 4 inputs, the 100 can capture 320x240 25 fps on all 4 inputs simultaneusly, the 400 can do it at 768x576 but its interlaced at this rez - as all analog capture cards are
A short note for other people buying capture cards. In my experience cheap capture cards designed for CCTV use will not work in VVVV. They are designed to work solely with the software provided with the card.
Other ways of capturing multiple analog video inputs could be to use multiple one channel cards and possibly combine with a USB video stick (very cheap now, obviously not best quality picture).
