My project is to use Dazzle to capture some S-VHS but I start with my webcam.
I am new with Kdenlive. So far I can't capture/record with the webcam.
What I did:
Connect the webcam and dmesg:

... I do have a PCVC830K webcam.
I run Kdenlive and start "Run Config Wizard":
Click Next twice, Standart Video = "Video4Linux capture",
Webcam "Check" = Red light on the webcam flash once, I select Philips 730 webcam, Capture format 640x480, 15/1fps,
I select "Record Monitor", Video4Linux and check "Configure" I cross the box "Capture audio: ALC260 Analog" then
click the red button.
I can see the video in the monitor screen. After few seconds I stop recording.
Capture 000x.mpg appears in the Clip area. I select it and select the "Clip Monitor" tab and Play.
I have only a white screen and no sound.
I try again to capture but now I have the Monitor saying "INVALID"
After few try Kdenlive had a bug...
In the project folder, I got some file capture00x.mpg but they are black without any sound.
Could some kind soul help me to get de capture with my webcam.
Thanks a lot.
To the Webmaster/Admin
There is no special thread forum for Capture / Record with Kdenlive. Don't you think it could be good to add one?
Moreover I didn't find any tutorial for that. Thanks
