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 supported. 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 extention allows more than one format. If
you get the "neither audio nor video format specified/found" message and don't know why,
you can enable the debug output (-d switch) to see what is going on.
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 quicktime.mov -f yuv2 -F stereo -r 12 -t 0:10
record a short quicktime movie.
