Q: screen capture of video images

hi there,
I used to be able to do a print screen(from a video clip) and then copy the contents into MS Paint and edit the image. Recently, I dont seem to be able to do that anymore? Without using additional s/w can anyone advise?

I was wondering if there was a way to capture still images from an S-Video line that is connected to a dental camera on the other end. Currently we use an S-video printer but we can't get paper for it anymore so were going to try to run the s-video cable to a laptop (s-video to USB cable?) and then somehow have the images save on the laptop so we can print. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks.

A:Print/Capture still images from S-video?

I would suggest you talk to the camera provider. Usually there is software assocated with the camera that would do as you desire.

I've got a website with my own domain name through Yahoo and use Sitebuilder. I've also started experimenting with some free websites. On the free ones I've been using my Sitebuilder program as a tool to edit images by dragging them where I want them and then snapping them all as one with screen capture. (I use MWSnap) I then save the captured image and insert it in the free site where you can't just drag images around. Is there a faster or more efficient way to be doing this?

I am looking for a good screen capture program so I can record video of the desktop.

Unlike many people who need something like this I need specifics.

1. Must be able to capture a full 1920x1080 display at a decent frame rate preferably 60 fps.

2. Must also be able to capture video in the highest possible quality.

3. Must be able to record "what you hear".

I want to record some tutorials for photoshop and other adobe apps and some for video editing software like sony vegas. This calls for the highest quality I can get really because the vids will be offered in full HD. I need the audio for the obvious reasons.

So far I have tried fraps with monitor aero desktop enabled and a variety of different setting. While it does capture in awesome quality it does not do it with a good frame rate. I get the choppiest video you have ever seen. It also has issues with 2 displays enabled. I only want to capture one not both and I don't want to disable one to do so.

I also tried snagit 10. Also good quality but poor results. Much like fraps it is resulting in choppy video. It is able to capture one full display by clicking on that region before recording which is great if it would work right.

I know this machine has the horsepower to do this so it is not a matter of not having the brute strength. It could be a matter of me not knowing what settings to use though. I wouldn't rule out the possibility that I just don't know what I am doing since I never tried actively capturin... Read more

A:Screen Capture (Video)

Double Post FTW! LOL actually being the self help kind of guy I am I managed to solve this before I got a reply. I wanted to share my solution in case anyone else sees this and needs the same thing I did.

Camtasia which I have used years ago back on version 5 has actually come a long long ways. I am not beyond giving any particular software multiple chances to impress me.

Going back to camtasia this is what I found. Within less time than it takes to instal the program you can also learn basically everything you need to know about it. In under 1 minute I was able to make a test recording and play it back with outstanding results.

I was impressed by the way the application was able to recognize my main display the one i want to record on that is. Select it and also place the recording controls exactly where I would have placed them in the bottom corner of the secondary display. Seriously they thought of everything you would need.

I was impressed by how easy it was to output my video exactly the way I want it and with so little effort I was unsure it would get everything right. It did and it did it in record time at that.

You really couldn't ask for more from a piece of software. It is that damned easy and fast to use. I am totally happy with this and I imagine others would be also.

My test recording was absolute quality and with perfect speed. No loss of quality full 1080 HD. The resulting file is light for full HD as well. You can also do ALL of your edits within the app... Read more

I want to capture screen flow in video or image on windows 7 64 bits system, with NVidia Quadro 600 graphic card (driver is up to date). I use lib "VLC" for video capture, or "print screen" button for image capture.

Lately I have been producing lots of training videos. (desktop videos, about 40-60 minutes in length).

I have been using camstudio, but the files are so massive. (my latest 30 minute video was 500+ mb)

I was wondering what your favorite video recording software is?

Camtasia seems the best, but it's so damn expensive.

camstudio is free, but the files are too damn big.

Jing is cool, but the free version only has like 5 minute cap lol.

What are your thoughts?

I need a video-capture utility that will also let me record sound from the speakers. I want to capture a webcast for later review. (It's an online class that I teach, but I want to "sit in" on a class with a more-experienced instructor and learn from his presentation. He's fine with this. I've tried to get him to just record his presentation but he's busy and hasn't gotten around to agreeing to it.)

I've tried several utilities that claim to do this, but I can't make it work on any of them. I can record with the microphone, but the mic doesn't record the speakers very clearly. I'd much rather get the audio right off the sound card.

I'm beginning to wonder if this is even possible with my hardware. Apparently many manufacturers are blocking this capability to prevent people from ripping music illegally. I've tried it on an XP Home SP3 system with a Realtek HD card, a Vista Home Premium SP1 system with Conexant HD SmartAudio, and an XP VM in VMware. None of them seem to offer the speakers as an input option -- only the mic.

Is there any way to do this, if the mic is the only input shown? Would it work to patch the headphone jack into the mic jack, or is the signal the wrong level? I'd try it but I don't want to risk damaging my mic input.


A:Solved: Screen video capture with sound from speakers?

I kept digging on this, and I figured out that my VMware XP system has a "Stereo Mix" input device. This input device will allow me to record from the speakers. My XP SP2 desktop and my Vista laptop don't have equivalent devices, so apparently they can't record the speaker sounds.

Now I just need to find a capture tool that actually works. I tried CamStudio and it was unusable. Within 20 seconds of recording, the audio and video were 8 sec out of sync. I just hope that's not a limitation caused by VMware scheduling, or I'm hosed.

Worst case, it appears to be safe to patch the line-out (headphone) jack into the mic jack. I might have to do that.

Now when I pluged in a 6 to 4 pin firewire cable to my DV cam, I could not do a capture in either the Movie Maker or Premier Elements. It says 'no capture device detected'.
I checked on the hardware under device manager, and it shows that the firewire card is working properly.
I also tried using the USB port on the DV cam to capture, but it was not detected. I heard that it requires a seperate driver from JVC manufacturer. My Cam model is GR-D270.

In WMP 10, I could capture screenshots by reducing the "Video Acceleration" and pressing ALT and PrintScrn. But by unchecking "use overlays" and pressing "CTRL+I", I got a far higher quality of screenshot capture.

In WMP 11 though, the "CTRL+I" method doesn't seem to work anymore - with the same media files.

Am I doing something wrong now, or is the "CTRL+I" method not possible anymore?

Mark, CTRL+I is not included in the valid key shortcuts for WMP11:

I am currently trying to connect my analogue camcorder to my computer.
I have the necessary cables and program, but I have doubt about the S-Video hole on my computer. It's a newish computer and the S-video hole (sorry about the word 'hole', but it's the only one that's come to mind at the moment) came with the computer (right next to were the monitor connects, so I'm assuming its part of the graphics card).
I'm also assuming that it is part of a video capture device (yer, I'm confused). I've tried connecting my camera with the aid of the software, but it doesn't detect a video capture device after I tell it I have connected all the wires and switched on the camera.

So does a S-Video hole mean that the computer has a video capture device, and if so, how can I know what type it is to download any extra drivers if needed? And is there such thing as an "on" button on one?

No documentation about it came with the computer which I find odd.

I recently got a Sony TRV245E camcorder and was wondering what the best format is when capturing images on the PC?
I seem to have the choice of AVI or MPEG-1.

The camera does this via USB but also has a 'DV out' connection, would this improve quality at all?

I did a test VCD and when I played it on my DVD player it looked horribly pixilated. I had to use NERO to do this as the Pixela ImageMixer software that came with the camera wouldn't recognise my CDRW drive.

Also as this camera has no 'DV in' is there a way of getting images back ot of the PC and onto VHS tape?

Hi prhutcho, and welcome to TSG.

Are you testing using the same S-Video cable and switching it between the capture unit and the TV? S-Video uses separate signal lines for the color information (Chrominance) and the brightness information (Luminance). You end up with a black white picture if the Chrominance line is broken in the cable.

I don't know how well they work, but there are 100 other things out there that do something similar...

I am wanting to buy a cheap capture card. All I want to do with it is capture video from a video player and convert to DVD. Can anyone advise on the best one to buy for just this purpose??


A:Video capture.

I'd advise getting a hardware encoder, which means the card does all the hard work and your PC if free for you to use.LeadtekI've got this.HauppaugeFrom what I've read the Hauppauge cards have a macrovision decoder inbuilt, which means you shouldn't need a seperate box to remove macrovision. Just search for Provision Macrovision on I'd stay away from the cheap software encoders at about ?25-?40 and get a slightly more expensive hardware encoder.

I have a Compaq Presario SR5219UK with a Windows Vista operating system. When I first connected my Canon Camcorder to it via Firewire I captured the video no problem, but not inexplicably it does not. It simply does not seen to recognose that the device has even been connected, so can any one help?

A:PC will not capture video

1.) Do you have any other firewire devices that you can connect to rule out "bad ports"?

2.) Do you have a different computer with firewire ports that you can connect the camcorder to, to see if it works?

3.) Is your camcorder detected in "My Computer"? (if not... was it before?)

4.) Did you make any changes such as: install any software, update Windows, install hardware - etc...prior to the problem occurring?

5.) In "Device Manager", do you see any yellow exclamation marks next to the Firewire ports under hardware? (IEEE-1394)

Hey, this is my first post here, and I'm not positive on whether or not this is the right place to be posting this, so if not, please tell me where it should be. Thanks!

Anyways, basically I have spent countless hours getting nowhere with this video capture thing. All I want to do is play my Nintendo Wii, and somehow get it recorded onto my computer into digital video. My computer is new with Windows Vista, is HP, and has many functions, some of which I don't even know what they do. But anyways, back to the main point.

Whenever I plug the Wii's AV cables into my computer, i get this message (on various capture programs such as DScaler, WMM, and Sony Vegas)

"The device 'Hauppauge WinTV 418 Video Capture' could not be opened. Please make sure that it is turned on and is not being used by another application or user."

What's really weird is that I have been able to play my Wii on the computer before, but one day, it just said that, and since then, no programs will take my AV things. Furthermore, I have tried connecting my VCR to the computer, and to no avail, I get the same message.

Does anyone know what is wrong??? I'm really confused, and this thing has been driving me up the wall.

Thanks for any help.

P.S. I don't have a digital camera or camcorder, so don't bother asking.

I posted a few weeks ago about some problems with capturing video, with no luck. Basically, I took back the AVC-1100 and got the AVC-2210. My problem is that everything seems ok, however when I try to capture video all it does is capture a black screen with no audio. The preview is also always black. I tried it on a new VCR and TV with the same results. So, now that I tried 2 different VCRs, and two different video capturing hardware, it must be something in my computer. I wrote adaptec, and they weren't much help. They said it could be something with my video drivers, they had me do start->run->dxdiag go to display and then try and download drivers (which i could not do....i couldn't find anything and im not sure what im looking for. i have NVIDIA GeForce Ti 4200 with AGP8X).

Hello Tech Support Guy gurus !!!

I have a Video Capture card that came with an egg camera on a system that I got about 6 years ago. It's not that great, but I wanted to install it on a friend's computer because she doesn't have a camera and wanted this one badly. The problem is, when I got it originally, the drivers came loaded on the hard drive, no CD or floppy ! Now I can't seem to get Windows 98 on her pc to recognize it. I did a search on yahoo to see what I could come up with, and got lots of pages back, but none of them led me to a driver for the card. I thought I'd see if any of you can help me.

The chip on the card reads:

There's a sticker on the back of the card


Anyone got any suggestions?

Oh, I hope someone can help me. please bare with me as I try to explain what I have gone through to get to where I am..
I built my computer in Sept 2002, purposely got a Pent 4 so that I could eventually edit video from my analog camera and burn onto a DVD.

about a month or so ago, I FINALLY had enough money to buy my DVD burner, and thus my journey began.

After the burner purchase, I needed a video card. I was told Roxio was the BEST.. so I bought it. well, when it arrived, I was shocked to find it was only the program to capture/edit WITH.

So.. another purchase of a video capture card. Bought the AverMedia EZMaker PCI. Got everything hooked up, and attempted to capture video..

after a few seconds of capture, I had dropped more frames then I had captured!

so.. again, another purchase because someone told me that if I capture to a second harddrive, it might work better.

Ordered a 120gb Maxtor hd, (already have a 120 western digital) when I received it, I found I was only shipped a 80gb. so they offered to upgrade me to a 120 SATA drive. so I jumped (thinking it was a better/faster drive) well.. it IS better/faster, but NOT compatible with my computer!

so.. another purchase, this time for a SERIAL ATA Controller.

I received that.. hooked everything up just fine, and STILL dropped frames!!

soo.. off to look for drivers. tried to update the Roxio, no updates found. I updated my Intel chipsets (something about the update was so it could use the higher speed drives)

My basic goal is to transfer some VHS tapes to DVD. I want to capture the video out the back of my VCR (RCA jacks) and into my PC so I can edit it and then burn to DVD. Can anyone recommend a good pci video capture card to do this?

Also, I have a 1394 firewire card in my system which I use to dump my camcorder video prior to burning to DVD and works great. I tried using my camcorder, but the AV jack on my camcorder (Panasonic PV-GS15) is for AV out only to play on a TV or something like that. Some units have jacks that are for both in and out, mine is not. However, there is the DV jack on the side of the camcorder. This is the port I use to transfer video out to my hard drive into my 1394 firewire card. I have talked with Panasonic and they confirmed I am able to record both audio & video through this DV port. At first, I thought great, all I need then is a cable with RCA phono jacks on one end to connect to my VCR out, and a DV connector on the other end to go to my camcorder. Then I realized, the "VCR output" is analog, and the "DV input" is digital. D'Oh!

A:PCI video capture card

TV capture cards will also act as analog video capture devices. I think this is an older card in OEM format Ė you have to download the drivers and software. But the price is right and Hauppauge is one of the best.

Iíve been wanting an inexpensive TV tuner for the computer and ordered one myself. If you want to wait a week I can tell you how well it works. Only my first 99 channels are analog and I donít really need the digital input for the computer. I bought a HDTV for that, but it might be nice to grab CNN on my second monitor.

If you donít want to mess with OEM this looks to be a complete kit:

If you are sure you donít want a TV tuner for the computer you might do better with a pure capture card. You could look through Pricewatch for a good price on a name brand capture card: Quite a few of the cards listed under capture are Firewire cards that assume digital input. You canít use one of those and it appears the cheapest capture cards are also TV tuners. My guess is that you get what you pay for as far as download speed, but there is only so much throughput you can get with a RCA plug. I had an old off-brand tuner card that couldnít be upgraded to XP, but it worked fine as a TV tuner.

I have an ATI Radeon AIW 9000 video card. I have my cable running into it and I am able to watch tv on my computer screen. This ATI software (that came iwth my card) allows me to schedule and record programs. Whenever I record something, it saves where I specify it to do and then closes (which I believe it what is supposed to happen). When I go to the directory and look at its contents, this is what I find:

The file is there, and looks normal (saved as a .mpg). If I look at the properties of it, it is usually a pretty large file (4gb for 1 hour or so). When I try to watch it (using winamp) it comes up in my playlist and shows 0:00 minutes. I cannot play it no matter what I try. It just acts like it is a file with no length at all. I have also tried to play it in WMP and get similar results. It attempts to play and just gives me some error.

I do know I did this in the past (maybe 2 years ago) and I was able to play back the files. i have no idea what would have changed. Anyone know what might be causing this? What do you think would happen if I tried burnign it onto a cd as VCD? Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks!

I tried using the search feature but couldn't find a Windows Movie Maker question like mine.

WMM used to work fine on my PC with XP. Here's what happens now when I connect my camcorder to my PC via firewire:

WMM comes up and ...

I select "Best quality for playback on my computer"
I select "Capture parts of the tape manually" (and indicate "Don't show preview during capture")
I "Start Capture"
I "Stop Capture" at the desired ending point.
I select "Create clips when wizard finishes"
The last thing I do is select "Finish."
Then in the "Collection" box, instead of the clip appearing, I get one or two boxes with a red X. Then the Xs go away and I only have one or two short pieces of the clip I was trying to capture. I have been unable to capture the entire clip, as desired.

Maybe this is the culprit ... Yesterday I downloaded at "" to try to convert a WMV video to AVI. I also downloaded Aglare WMV to AVI converter through CNET. But those didn't work for a particular video that I was trying to convert, so I uninstalled them.

Could these downloads have messed up my WMM?
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,

A:WMM - Won't capture entire video

There might be a buggy video codec which might be giving you problems.

If there is a video codec in WMM that you can manged delete the onces that was recently installed by date when you downloaded the converters.

Hello peoples!
Does anyone have an opinion on how to capture an online video clip? Is there a freeware program I could use?
I watch a lot of horse races from web sites and I was wondering how I could somehow download them and save them.
Thanks in advance.

Greetings all.
I would like to capture digital video from my camcorder onto my external hard drive and edit it from there using Roxio before burning a DVD. The external drive is a 120 Gig Maxtor One Touch using USB 2.0 (it is about half full). Is this a possibility or, do I need Firewire? If my external drive is not OK, any suggestions as to a manufacturer and specs for an additional one would be appreciated.
If Firewire is needed, any suggestions on a good card would be appreciated as well.
I will be using a Dell Dimension 8250 with 2.4 Mhz P4 and 1 gig RDRAM.
Thanks for any help you can provide.

A:Video Capture on an External HDD

Using USB is fine. Whatever program you are using, you just need to "Save As" to the Maxtor drive.

I'm looking for a little advice about video input cards. I need one for under $50 dollars to capture home movies from VHS and then burn to DVD. At the present time I'm using a Dazzle* DVC 80 USB interface and the software I'm using is Roxio DVD builder. However the output video quailty is nowhere as good as the original VHS tape.
I think this is due to the slow USB interface even though I'm recording in MPEG2 format. The truth of the matter is, I don't know much about video capture. For example is MPEG 4 better then MPEG 2 . All I want is for the output video quailty to be at least as good as the original VHS.
I have been looking at a card from CTX industries (CTX DVD Studio Xtra Model MD001) but before buying, I thought someone here might have a little advice.
