DELL bought a gang of Magewell 11100 Pro Capture cards and decided, na, we’re doing something else. That’s an expensive change of mind considering these critters go for $899 a pop. They ended up on the SprySource eBay store for $389 and I couldn’t pass that up. Let’s find out if it knows how to Linux and see if we can fix that shouty fan.
Install build essentials and kernel headers.
sudo apt install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Download the latest Pro Capture Linux x86 Driver, extract, and run the installer.
Low latency configuration: Use mwcap-control to configure the 11100 Pro for low latency. Use video0 through video3.
mwcap-control --video-output-lowlatency on /dev/video0
mwcap-control --video-output-lowlatency off /dev/video0
