Hi Gareth,

Are you overlaying Paparazzi GCS data onto the VLC video? If so can you please explain how to do this?

Hi Kurtis,

I never got Spook working, I just use VLC for recording, and Cheese if you want just a quick preview. I've also got some custom stuff to overlay various bits of flight data onto the video on the groundstation.

Gareth and Stephen,

Thank you for the advice on the video capture devices. I already have a
video receiver, so I don't think I'll need the Pollin unit.
I'll look into the Pinnacle or EasyCap.

Are these devices mostly plug-and-play, or is there some configuration
Accodring to the wiki, I should use Spook to receive and compress the video
data. Any updates or changes to this procedure?
Steve, thanks for the IMU code.

Pinnacle DVC-100 here, you can still get them and their bretherin on
Hauppage usually work well also.
