    A Nice DV Editor

    Well here is my second multimedia top for the day. I recently saw a reference to a DV edting tool called Kino. I did an "apt-get install kino/unstable." The program runs fine and looks pretty nice. Of course now all i need is about $1,000 (or more) for a nice DV camera!!! But nice to see that there are cool open source apps to do work like this.

    I did an "apt-get install kino/unstable."

    Thank you, thank you. This was just the hint I needed to get the latest version of Kino 0.6.4 loaded onto my 06-27-2003 version of Knoppix 3.2.
    I kept trying the " apt-get install kino" command but reported back that the latest version of Kino 0.6.0 was installed. Did not know about telling apt-get to install the "unstable" newer 0.6.4 version.

    I still need to play with Kino, but I could now play AVI files and download from my Canon GL1 camera a few clips, that were automatically separated into several clips. I put the clips together to make a test video.
    I had fun, using Knoppix and my Video Camera. Will next try to export to MPEG files to make either a VCD or an SVCD to burn and play in my DVD player.

    Hey I'm glad it works. I still don't have a DV cam but I'm glad someone is able to make good use of Kino.

    Re the /unstable trick. There is another version of this that comes in handy too. Sometimes /unstable solves the dependency problems, but sometimes not. When that doesn't work, I've found that most dependency problems can be solved like this:

    Code:
    apt-get install -t unstable kino
    /unstable will get only the application from unstable
    -t unstable will get the application and all dependencies to make that application work from unstable.

    Take care.

    Check this camera out. DCR-TRV350. That is what I am saving up for.
    I'm getting my machine ready for video editing. I added a used drive and moved /var to it and the BIOS now says that there is a imminant problem with the drive. I tried to move /var to another directory and forgot about editing fstab. So now I need to use Knoppix to move and fix this problem.

    Try to get a mini-DV camera. It's the new standard and should be around for at least a while. Digital 8 is on the way out.
    I just picked up the Canon ZR60 from here for $330:
    http://www.6ave.com/product.jsp?x=ZR60

    It uses mini-DV tapes, has an 18X optical zoom and a built in encoder for those old home videos you might want to burn to dvd.

    I'm starting to get into the whole video editing, authoring, burning deal. My wife is due to give birth any day now with our fist child.
    I've been wanting to get into digital video so here's the excuse I was looking for. I got the firewire card installed, recompiled the kernel and installed kino. FYI, a new version of kino (v.7) came out a couple of days ago. Also k3b now supports dvd burning in the latest release. Just waiting for them to hit the 'unstable' package repository.

    You can use this in your sources.list:

    Code:
    ## K3b sources for sarge requires KDE > 3.1.2 from SID
    deb http://www.planet-moll.de/debian sarge main
    To get it now the install will fail because it cannot overwrite a file you would just cd /var/cache/apt/archives and then dpkg -i --force-overwrite k3b_0.10-1_i386.deb and it will install and work.
