    Tools for Video Streamcapturing

    Im working in a project. We have to use a Camera over 3 Weeks and have to capture its Stream. We have found a way to save the stream with VLC-Media-Player. Copy the stream address and so on... But for our needs its not the best way. We dont want one huge file ( Terrabyte or something like this). It would be good to have a software with some more options. Save every hour in a new file. And it would be great but not necessary if it is captured in avi format. Is there anything u know? And a good conversion tool, if the capture thing canīt do this.
    Sry for my bad english... hope you can help.

    VLC can do this if you dig in the documentation or make a shell script to make it only record an hour and then reload it (assuming you can deal with non-overlapping recordings, you can make a different shell script to create overlapping recordings). The folks in #vlc on Freenode are always helpful ( a web interface to this IRC channel is available at ) and speak a variety of languages.

    Other than suggesting you continue to use the same tool in a different way, I cannot be of much help unless you explain how you get the camera signal into a computer.
