v4l(2) drivers

Please check the v4l wiki for most recent informations about video4linux and the drivers. As I don't maintain v4l any more the informations below will bitrot over time. I'll keep them online for now, but at some point in the future the pages will likely disappear.

maintained by me (until Feb 2005)

ivtv
The primary goal of the IvyTV Project is to create a kernel driver for the iTVC15 familiy of MPEG codecs. The iTVC15 family includes the iTVC15 (CX24315) and iTVC16 (CX24316). These chips are commonly found on Hauppauge's WinTV PVR-250 and PVR-350 TV capture cards.
usbvision
This is a driver for the video grabber USBVision, a USB-only cable used in many "webcam" devices. It supports streaming and capture of color or monochrome video via the Video4Linux API.
zoran
The Unified Zoran Driver is a generic driver for the zoran-360x7 PCI chipset, that is mostly used in MJPEG hardware capture devices, such as the Iomega Buz, Pinnacle/Miro DC10+ and the Linux Media Labs LML33.
Plextor
Linux SDK for PX-M402U/PX-TV402U

If you want to be listed here drop me a mail. Note I don't want to build a full list of v4l drivers. The intention is just to point people looking for a TV card driver to the correct place. The legend that bttv drives every TV card in the world seems to go away very slowly, althrough that isn't true any more a long time ...

figure what chip your TV cards uses

The lspci command is your friend, it will nicely list all PCI devices present in your system.
