I use Linux(Mint Linux Petra) and will probably switch to Ubuntu 14 soon.
I need to record video with my camera on my laptop(imagine I use a web-camera for simplification) and I need to see real-time what I am shooting and record the stream.
cheese but both fail on my distribution.
Also, I plan to use external camera for better quality, any suggestions on interfaces, etc.? I prefer to see the stream directly on my laptop screen. (If you want to know why - it will save me some time while editing.)
