Is there a ROS node that supports ADVC-55? I tried camera1294 but it does not find the ADVC-55. coriander does not find it either. kino and dvgrab does work with the ADVC-55.

So is there anything available out there or do I have to implement my own node?

I finally got it to work with gscam (the pipe line I use is: dv1394src port=-1 ! video/x-dv ! dvdemux ! dvdec quality=5 drop-factor=1 ! ffmpegcolorspace). Unfortunately there is a delay that I cannot figure out were it is caused so we might go with an USB frame grabber instead since when we testes with an ordinary Web Cam we did not see this delay.

Since kino and dvgrab work but coriander does not, this device apparently conforms to the Digital Video (DV) and not the Digital Camera (DC) standard. So, camera1394 would not be expected to work.

Try the gscam driver. It uses gstreamer, which does support DV devices.

Thanks for the gscam suggestion! I got it to work using gscam.
