Whatever you can contribute will be highly recommended, no matter if it's a HOWTO, help and explanations how to write a driver, how to install some a driver or whether you can explain how that beast called DVB is working.

This wiki is intended to be an authoritative source of information regarding the use of analog video and digital TV sources under Linux (i.e. [[What is V4L or DVB?|the subject matters covered under the V4L & DVB frameworks]]). The basic plan is to aggregate information about available hardware, how V4L or DVB work, software used with the hardware and so forth. Like all other wikis, the V4L-DVB wiki relies upon the contributions of its users. Hence, it will only be as useful as we make it!

Welcome to the linuxtv.org V4L-DVB Wiki !

What is this wiki about?

This wiki is intended to be an authoritative source of information regarding the use of analog video and digital TV sources under Linux (i.e. the subject matters covered under the V4L & DVB frameworks). The basic plan is to aggregate information about available hardware, how V4L or DVB work, software used with the hardware and so forth. Like all other wikis, the V4L-DVB wiki relies upon the contributions of its users. Hence, it will only be as useful as we make it!

How can I help with the wiki?

We encourage you to share your knowledge and help with the task of turning this site into a grand repository of knowledge. Your input, whether it be for providing a set of instructions as to how to get a certain device working, or an explanation for some complex concept, or improving an existing article by correcting something even as simple as a spelling mistake, will be highly appreciated. Here are a few basic links that can help you get started:
