I just want to know how I can connect a CCTV camera to the guruplug using "USB CAPTURE CARDS" or any other suggestable.
I have got EasyCap002 (lsusb: 05e1:0408):http://www.amazon.com/EasyCap-Model-002-Channel-Capture/dp/B002BCKYHY
It works with this driver: https://sourceforge.net/projects/easycapdc60
I tried with Asus ruter wl500gp2 - 240MHz CPU, 32MB RAM. Works but it is a pain - almost out of resources. Device/driver can't give small resolution and that way, driver/streaming program (mjpg_streamer/motion) requlre lot of memory. Also, device does not support jpeg (for example, my webcam can do jpeg).
I was NOT aware of these details. I was happy, there is driver for linux and I bought quickly one easycap. So, you better check what you need, does the device support jpeg and different resolutions (is the linux driver able to switch and use device with different resolutions). Other way, your software have to do resize/compression it and it will cost you CPU cycles... (Using plug computer, maybe it will works much better. My focus and experience was with 240MHz CPU/32MB RAM.)
Here another driver: https://sourceforge.net/projects/syntekdriver
It did not work nice for me... Officially it does not support my device 05e1:0408. It support some other devices. You could check what other devices - some webcams, perhaps there are other capture devices.
There are many different variants of EasyCap device. Maybe some of them have more features. The one I have got, does not have many features but it is cheap. This device say, it support 4 CCTV cameras - it does, but in switching mode (not in parallel, not simultaneously). I read some people complained... I also read that linux driver is much better than windows driver
There are also more expensive alternatives. Please, get back and tell us, your findings.
pp: Hello to everyone, I am new to plugcomputers... but impressed! My first "embedded" experience was Asus router. Next will be iConnect. (sorry, I already order it before I find about plug computers... but it is similar)
pp2: default plugcomputer forum theme/font is a little hard for me to read
