I got the Blackmagic codec for XP to work on Fedora 6. After installing
the MSI file on a Windows box, I transferred the BMDCodecLib.dll file to
my F6 system and installed the DLL file into /usr/local/lib/codecs with
the others. I added the following to codecs.conf:
info "Win32/QuickTime Blackmagic 10Bit"
Setting the driver to qtvideo fails because qtvideo appears to only
check for the various Quicktime DLLs, typically using the qtx suffix.
But, the vfw driver worked. Maybe one of the developers will add this
entry to the default codecs.conf.
