Kalva is a Lightweight Video Application

It provides a simple to use videorecorder using MEncoder to do the real work. You can schedule movies or serials. Kalva can import channellists from e.g. xawtv or xawtv4 and generate a knew one using scantv. You can edit and store that list. You might as well download a channellist from www.kde-files.org (KHotNewStuff). Kalva has a DCOP interface. This is meant as a convinient way to support recording for external apps like xmltv browsers (f.i. KTvSchedule). If You want to use the DCOP interface You can push Kalva into KDE's systemtray (works just like with JuK or amaroK). ktvapp is a simple to use and simple to setup videorecorder for the KDE. It is using MEncoder from the MPlayer package to do the real work. You can schedule a movierecording by choosing the date from a calender (will be passed to at) and a serial recording by choosing the days of the week (feeds your crontab). Save and download option for hardware profiles and quality profiles (KNewstuff) are planned for later releases.
