Viewcast doesn't officially support Linux. They only offer Windows drivers. Rather than banging your head against the wall, your options are to install the card on a Windows box or choose another vendor for your steaming media/capture card.

C'est la vie.

That is news to me. The last time I looked, Viewcast only supported windows for this card. Surely Viewcast must have some recommended Linux-friendly software to work with their card if they're supporting Linux drivers now. (don't hold your breath) Probably best to go directly to the source and ask Viewcast.

I can't offer any direct help due to lack of experience in this area - my last foray into TV/Video-capture was some years ago; however, you might better find help on the lists of repos that support multimedia, such as [url=http://lists.atrpms.net/mailman/listinfo/atrpms-users]ATrpms[/url] or [url=http://lists.rpmforge.net/mailman/listinfo/users]RPMforge[/url].

It would be best to start a new topic with an appropriate subject for a new question, rather than hijacking your own thread with a related but different question. Hiding the question in the old thread will decrease the chances of getting an answer.

Both ATrpms and RPMforge have ffmpeg packages. I cannot find any ffserver package available, but ffmpeg is described as a server. A yum search turns up:[code]
