video4linux on Redhat

I've never used nVidia's video catpture, but ih ave used another card's video
capture. These pages might help you.       <- bttv is the driver needed        <- v4l is the API  <- v4l2 is the second generation API

The drived needed are kernel level, so you will likely need the kernel source.
Though i think RedHat compiles like every kernel module possible.

Go through these web pages, and the documents/links. See what you can do.
Sometimes getting the bttv stuff to work can be hard.
