I have searched everywhere for a suitable driver - to my knowledge one does not exist. What I recommend is that you write your own driver or get a guru to do tis for you if you are not familiar with writing drivers. Sorry this couldn't be a more positive answer,

the driver for the original Video Blaster can be obtained from :

ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/apps/video/vid_src-0.7.tar.gz

however, you need to compile the src code yourself.
The above package include driver & X application (sample) capable of displaying & grabing video.
