Webcamd Man Pages for DVB Devices

Hans Petter Selasky has committed the new webcamd man pages which document the devices supported by the following V4L-DVB drivers: a800, af9005, af9015, anysee, au6610, b2c2, ce6230, cinergy, cxusb, dib0700, digitv, dtt200u, dtv5100, dw2102, ec168, friio, gl861, gp8psk, hdpvr, m920x, mr800, nova-t, opera1, s2255, siano, ttusb2, umt, uvc, vp702x, and vp7045. Due to the ports freeze, the package (version 0.1.20_1) was not available in time for FreeBSD/PC-BSD 8.2 release. You can get the latest man pages as follows:

1. if you have the latest version of the ports tree installed, run make deinstall && make reinstall within /usr/ports/multimedia/webcamd/ or run portmaster to upgrade webcamd.


2. grab the package from the Latest repository: fetch (for 32 bit systems) or fetch (for 64 bit systems). After fetching, run the command pkg_add webcamd* from the directory containing the fetched package. If webcamd is already installed, run pkg_delete -x webcamd first so that the new package will install.

If your device is listed but does not work or if it does work and is not listed, let us know the product name as well as its VendorID:ProductID so that we can add it to the man page (if it is missing) or figure out what the problem is if it does not work.

    perhaps you can pack it into pc-bsd update. thus it’d reach everyone without users having to deal with command line mess (and possibly breaking something).

      Good idea! Kris is working on the update which should be available through Update Manager in a day or so.
