Tried this using a V4L device. VLC worked, KDENLive did not. Not intuitive 
at all that recording video is done from the monitor section. Not helpful 
that the help button gives "Not found". And 
http://userbase.kde.org/Kdenlive/Manual/Capturing gives less than helpful 
info. I don't have a dvgrab (FW) device to try, but V4L has huge 
latency... this may be libav. There seem to to be issues with regard to 
libav/ffmpeg and how they are compiled for doing screen capture too.
