Capturing Video From QuickCam Express Using FFMpeg

Another quick post.

You can capture motion video from your QuickCam Express USB camera (assuming properly configured) by issuing the following command:

$ ffmpeg -r 15 -s 352x288 -f video4linux -i /dev/video0 /tmp/video.avi

This will capture at a 15 fps frame rate at the specified resolution.
