Package: xawtv-3.95-i486-1pjb.tgz

xawtv 3.95

xawtv started as TV application for the bttv driver, because the Motif-based “xtvscreen” was the only TV application at this time. Alot has changed since:

  • The xawtv and bttv driver switched over to the video4linux interface.
  • Support for more interfaces was added: Xvideo Extention, the new video4linux2 interface and BSD Family video grabber driver (bktr).
  • xawtv isn’t a single application any more, it is a small suite of video4linux related software, with video recording capabilities and serveral useful command line tools.
  • In the future even more hardware will be supported, the current development snapshots already have DVB support for example.

    First hit in Google on xawtv in tgz format, and file not found here… very funny indeed.

    Yeah, the site seems to have been taken down. I guess that makes a lot of package posts here inaccurate.

    You can still get a tgz of xawtv at (
