Cheap card: Compro Videomate DVB-T200 Issues - occasional jittery sections - probable frame drops - wrong frame rate?

  1. Capture script

From memory this works

streamer -t 160:00 -s 720x576 -r 25 -o filename.avi -f mjpeg -F stereo

Processed with

ffmpeg -i ../f.avi -target pal-dvd  -acodec mp2 -ab 128k -pass 2 -passlogfile fawlty.log fawlty.mpg2

Edit with Avidemux

For some reason direct encoding didn't

ffmpeg -ac 2 -f oss -i /dev/dsp -s 720x576 -r 25 -f video4linux2 -i /dev/video0 cookff.avi
