Hi Greg,

Do you know c++?  If you want a full c++ example of writing an external
recorder, you can look at https://github.com/jpoet/HauppaugeUSB .  That is
for the Colossus2 which uses usb, but you could replace that part with some
ffmpeg code.

That being said, I would not mind seeing what Brian came up with for
ffmpeg.  There are times when such an interface would be useful.
