Xawtv can record TV into raw or avi file, including formats:

      422p    16 bit YUV 4:2:2 (planar)    [raw]
      4mpeg   yuv4mpeg (mpeg2enc >= 1.6)   [yuv]

    audio formats:
      mono8   8bit mono                    [avi]

      stereo  16bit stereo (LE)            [avi]

It seems that "yuv4mpeg" is some kind of raw formats, but what about "mjpeg" (motion jpeg) in avi files? I've found that only ffmpeg-based plugins can play it then...


the 2 4mpeg formats definetely are a patent problem, mjpeg OTOH is fine. I don't know what the status as a container format is.

Hans
