I'm not sure which log file to look at? /var/log/messages has tons of stuff about /dev/video0, but it's pretty big. Interestingly, I changed my Format to PAL and it gets an image. The image has one thick black line through part of it but other than that, it's working. I know that on my other system ...

The format is NTSC and palette is RGB24, which are the settings that work when the same system is booted into Ubuntu. I can try the config file approach, but it looks like it is loading the correct card as 171, which is the same as when booted into Ubuntu.

It appears that ffmpeg in not installed through the .deb package. Is this a problem? root@system-t:~# ls -l /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg ls: /usr/l...

I have something that works pretty well and has the potential to record audio when an event starts/stops too, but I'm not sure it's the best way to go about it.
