Hope you don´t mind me asking but could you guide me (and others) on what to
Is it.
1. Low risk - leave raw1394 as disk and don´t allow kino to access raw1394
to control camcorder
2. add user to the ¨disk¨ group - is this v.bad?
3. change raw1394 to video group -  " no no no ¨

I´m assuming that acually 2. is worse than 3 as your giving yourself access
to raw1394 plus other areas too. In which case 3 would be an option.

Am I correct in assuming that everyone should go with option 1?

I want to put a section on video editing on the wiki and I want to get this
