Copy Video Tapes from the Camcorder
If you own a DV Camcorder, and you want to transfer your recorded tapes to the computer, the recommended tool to use is dvgrab.This is command line tool.
Install dvgrab in ubuntu
sudo apt-get install dvgrab
This is simple example how to use dvgrab from command line
The autosplit option splits your video into a new file whenever a scene change happens. This is, whenever you paused or switched off your camera when recording your tape. This is convenient, because it organizes your file such that each file represents one continuous recording.
The format dv2 option selects the avi dv2 file format for your recordings, which is not only compatible with the Open Movie Editor, but also with a number of other Video Editing Applications that run on Windows.
The opendml option is necessary for video files to have sizes larger than 1 GigaByte. A word of warning though, while files larger than 2 GigaBytes work well under normal Linux Installations, it can be impossible to copy such large files to harddisks that were formatted for compatibility with older Windows Versions (FAT Filesystems). Unfortunately external USB Harddisks are often formatted like this, so be aware.
The option size is set to zero, which makes the dvgrab software disable the default file size limit of 1 GigaByte. This is necessary, because DV Video Files may become rather large, and having them split into plenty of small files is not very convenient. Read the previous Paragraph to understand why the Splitting is enabled by default, it is for compatibility with certain Harddisks.
