gdvrecv is a set of tools for FreeBSD to receives audio and video data from a digital camcorder via an IEEE 1394 (widely known as FireWire) link and stores them into an DV file. This software package is composed by :
* firewire, a Python module for the FreeBSD firewire sub system
* dvrecv, a command line tool to receive a DV stream
* gdvrecv, a Gtk tool to receive a DV stream
Basicaly, dvrecv and gdvrecv do the same thing as the fwcontrol -R command, but in a more user-friendly way.
