Meanwhile I have found some related ports. Here is my search result:
dv2jpg converts a Type-2 DV codec-encoded AVI stream (from dvgrab, for
example) to an mjpeg-encoded AVI stream that can be processed by the
mjpeg tools package. The mjpeg AVI can be converted to mpeg video/audio
and burned onto a VCD later.
gdvrecv is a set of tools for FreeBSD 5 to receives audio and video data
from a digital camcorder via an IEEE 1394 (widely known as FireWire) link
and stores them into an DV file.
The Quasar DV codec (libdv) is a software codec for DV video, the
encoding format used by most digital camcorders, typically those
that support the IEEE 1394 (a.k.a. FireWire or i.Link) interface.
Libdv was developed according to the official standards for DV
video: IEC 61834 and SMPTE 314M.
Please note that this software is only concerned with the DV video
compression format, which is different from capturing the data from
xdvshow is a DV/RTP viewer on X11.
