I want to import and work with my dv's which are from a SONY DCR-PC101E camcorder, I've installed alot of Video editing software on one of my systems, namely my Fedora 20 running on an old HP with Firewire. Only two of the software, I've found until now can import from the camera, Kdenlive and Kino(dead project).
NOTE: Kdenlive has some sort of distortion in the feed, so the video on my computer is distorted while it is fine on the tape. Not good. So it works for importing/editing, just not as it should.
Now I want to try Kino, as it is well known and I need something that works, but it gives an error:
WARNING: dv1394 kernel module not loaded or failure to read/write /dev/raw1394
while this works and lets me import my videos:
dvgrab -a -format raw -rewind -t prefix-
What do I need to do to give Kino life on my Fedora 20 system and use it to import dv's from my camcorder?
I've looked around and found alot of old post's working with the same error, but all where old/dated f.exmp for Fedora 7/8/12, and that's along time ago. And there where alot of talk about new Firewire and old modules.
My system is:
Fedora 20 x86_64 HP dc7700cmt 2G Ram
The software is:
Here is tail -f /var/log/messages on the firewire:
[root@Host folder]# tail -f /var/log/messages Nov 12 13:40:03 Host kernel: [ 1478.408673] firewire_core 0000:01:00.0: phy config: new root=ffc1, gap_count=5 Nov 12 13:40:04 Host kernel: [ 1478.999715] firewire_core 0000:01:00.0: created device fw1: GUID 0800460102f19880, S100
When I run these:
[root@Host folder]# rmmod firewire-core [root@Host folder]# rmmod firewire-ohci
there is this output in /var/log/messages:

My user is in these groups:
uid=1000(user) gid=1000(user) groups=1000(user),6(disk),39(video),983(vboxusers)
Same error applies if I run Kino as "root".
user@Host ~]$ sudo modprobe dv1394 [sudo] password for user: modprobe: FATAL: Module dv1394 not found.
Is this a clue, if so, could someone help me use it to solve this?
Re comment 61: > Now i do not know what are the implications of unblocking the firewire-ohci, but > that was the solution that made my kino/kdenlive worked beautifully.... The implication is that you switched from ohci1394 + ieee1394 + raw1394 ( /dev/raw1394 ) --- libraw1394 + libiec61883 + kino to firewire-ohci + firewire-core ( /dev/fw* ) --- libraw1394 + libiec61883 + kino i.e. to different newer FireWire kernel drivers and a different character device file interface. This is basically what the blueprint "Enable new Firewire stack in default kernel config" is about. (See box at the right side of this page.) The new kernel drivers are simpler, better performing, more compliant to specifications, and more secure than the older drivers. In contrast to Ubuntu's raw1394 access policy, firewire-core's device files are created with more liberal access permissions for devices which need to be (and are safe to be) accessed by userspace programs such as kino.
Sounds abit like my configuration, with the same modules and the same device names.
I also found this, but I can't figure out if this helps me.
Here is the Firmware:
[root@Host folder]# lspci -nn | grep 1394 01:00.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394) [0c00]: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6315 Series Firewire Controller [1106:3403]
and here is:
[root@Host folder]# ls -l /dev/fw* crw-rw----. 1 root video 249, 0 Nov 12 15:39 /dev/fw0
