== Background ==
5 6 Niels Petter Rasch-Olsen
pylibdv is a project for one of my university courses; [http://www.uio.no/studier/emner/matnat/ifi/INF5660/index-eng.xml INF5660 - Advanced problem solving with high level languages].

pylibdv is a python wrapper for [http://libdv.sourceforge.net/ libdv].[[BR]]

From libdv home page: "libdv is a software codec for DV video, the encoding format used by most digital camcorders, typically those that support the IEEE 1394 Firewire or i.Link) interface. Libdv was developed according to the official standards for DV video: IEC 61834 and SMPTE 314M."

== Requirements ==
11 11 Niels Petter Rasch-Olsen
libdv 1.4 (works with debian package 0.104-2 from debian repository)[[BR]]
12 8 Niels Petter Rasch-Olsen
python >= 2.4 (testing.py won't work with 2.3, doctest will fail due to a bug in 2.3)[[BR]]

== Known bugs ==
16
libdv seg-faults on some versions of the libdv library. There seems to be a bug in the asm-optimization, so a quick work-around if this occurs is to turn off asm-optimization.
