streamer - record audio and/or video
streamer [ options ]
streamer reads audio and/or video data from /dev/video0 and /dev/dsp and writes the data to the disk. Various output formats are sup- ported. Start streamer with '-h' for a list of options and supported output formats. streamer will use the file extention of the output file name to figure which format to use. You need the -f/-F options only if the exten- tion allows more than one format. You can safely stop the recording at any time with Ctrl+C. streamer will catch the signal and stop recording correctly (i.e. write movie file headers) before exiting.
streamer -o foobar.jpeg write a single jpeg file. streamer -o -f yuv2 -F stereo -r 12 -t 120 record a short quicktime movie (120 frames / 12 fps => 10 seconds).
