libavc1394 is a programming interface for the 1394 Trade Association AV/C
(Audio/Video Control) Digital Interface Command Set. It allows you to
remote control camcorders and similar devices connected to your computer
via an IEEE 1394 (aka Firewire) link.
This package includes the libraries and header files needed to compile
programs using libavc1394, as well as the command line tool dvcont that
acts as a simple remote control, the tool mkrfc2734 that is needed
to advertise IP over IEEE 1394 (RFC 2734) capabilities with the Linux
2.4 kernel series, and the utility panelctl, a remote control for
set-top boxes.
