I finally installed and configured OnLocation on my laptop, and I was looking forward to shooting 1080p footage in my car. Imagine my disappointment when it turned out that OnLocation refuses to record from the camera! I know the camera works because other software can use it (alas, at 720p). Why is it I am not having any luck with this? All the other forums suggested that OnLocation is the ultimate tool for mobile recording to disk, and now I can't even get it to show me the live footage. What gives?
OnLocation supports only cameras connected via FireWire (IEEE 1394). It's actually a bug that the list of devices shows a webcam.
Oh, wow. I have wasted a lot of money, then. Would you happen to know how I can record 1080p footage from the webcam in some other way?
VirtualDub works. But there are a few hoops to jump through. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QakF9eWBh7A. I realize that it has been a while since your question was posted so if you have found something better than this, do let me know.
