I would like to be able to record 5-8 video channels on a linux computer.
While the videos are being recorded I would like to break them into 1-2 hour pieces and back them up.
The source of videos is 24/7 for a few days and I cannot afford to lose video.
I have seen a number of solutions but standard security cctv DVRs/NVRs tend to make you use their software to download video files (even if you try to back the video files up on a NAS).
Are there other possible solutions to this problem?
RCA to USB connecters can only be recorded one at a time (I think) and certain frame grabbers tend to record uncompressed video which would be too computationally expensive to encode when it's a multi channel feed on a single linux machine. Nvidia might be able to encode videos fast but I'm not sure how many channels of raw video it can do at the same time.
