[FFmpeg-user] Looking for an HDMI/Component Capture Card

Thanks for your replies.
Most people seem to think Black Magic Intensity Pro is the best choice for me (I only need the raw pixels). I was assuming that I could then capture the pixels to a file with ffmpeg. Is that not true? Will ffmpeg work with this card right out of the box?

I am currently capturing off of HDMI with a Black Magic Intensity Pro (BM
Pro as I like to call it) on linux using this fancy little tool:
It took a bit of an effort to get going and had to mess with finding the
right version of libav and the black magic SDK. Also, you need to know your
input source resolution and format, otherwise it just fails. Through trial
and error I was able to get it to work. I just end up writing the data to a
pipe and then feeding it directly to ffmpeg.
Hope that helps
