Video Capture — What works?

In terms of native OS/2 solutions for video capture (single
frame) from video cameras and other sources, what works?

Primary applications will be computer input of thousands
of slides already converted to video tape, plus grabbing
single frames of videocam recordings for web page use.

VideoIn/2 seems to just work with plug in video cards, but
even getting a decent list of supported cards is like pulling
teeth.

No support for ubiquitous comsumer devices like Snappy……

Regular Connectix QuickCam’s are supported by shareware drivers,
but the new QuickClip equivalent to Snappy is unknown.  And
there is also a TWAIN for QuickCam under development.  Not
quite there yet…

So if I want to get the family a decent OS/2 video capture
option for THIS christmas, what do you recommend?

    I use video capture with VideoIn from Warp4′s BonusPak on
    my ThinkPad 760ED, but that’s a rather expensive solution…

    Furthermore, I have a "FAST Movie Machine II" running with
    WarpTV (using TVKit/2′s driver for the MMII). I haven’t tried
    VideoIn with it so far. WarpTV only supports viewing Video/TV
    and making single snapshots, so that won’t be enough for you.

    AFAIK, all video cards listed in the MMPM/2 install routine
    (where ths soundcards are listed as well) should work with VideoIn.
    A cheap solution should be a VideoBlaster, but they are not capable
    of high resolutions. Even the much more expensive MMII only supports
    up to 1280×1024.

    If you need more information about my configurations, please use EMail.
    I’m also interested in information about other configurations, so
    please Cc: me, too.

    Take a look at Integral Technologies (http://www.integraltech.com). I’m
    using their FlashPoint 128 Lite for OCR on an automation tool. Works
    well. It’s ET6000 Viper-based and provides both the video output and the
    frame grabber. If you want to use your own video card, consider their
    FlashBus MV Pro, or look at the pricier but higher-performance Imaging
    Technologies cards (http://www.imaging.com). These are PCI cards that
    bus-master into system or video memory.
