Cupid
I did some work on my video capture tool Cupid yesterday and today. I fixed some stability issues, crashers, added some sanity checks and I added a bunch of new features, amongst which:
  • snapshot support (and since it has webcam support, this makes it a good webcam tool as well)
  • overlay emulation (which means that if your card does not support hardware overlay, we will set up a background GStreamer pipeline to display video instead; again useful for webcams)
  • minimal mode and fullscreen support, which make it useful to watch TV
There's some more needed, such as channel/tuning and remote control support, but all in all I think I've finally got my replacement for STV, which I wrote years ago. We're not tvtime yet, but adding a deinterlacer or text-overlay is nothing more than a GStreamer element, so I have good faith in it.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
