Hello all,
I have a Sony Handicam 8mm video camera and am attempting to digitize some old 8mm video tapes with a Linux workstation. I have previously accomplished this using a Windows7 box running a software application produced by Pinnacle utilizing an A/D converter called a "Dazzle." This works fine as long as I'm using it with Windows7.
I was wondering if there existed a method to accomplish the same operation with Linux. I am currently running Linux Mint 19.3 (64-bit) with the Cinnamon desktop.
I tried OBS. However, I am able to record the audio channel but all video setting for the camcorder are greyed-out (can't seem to configure OBS for the video component).
Thanks!
