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 capturing the desktop. I have recorded lots of games while playing them but this is worlds apart from that or maybe it just feels like it is.
Anyhow if anyone has some experience recording a video of the desktop could you please give me a hand.
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 application and without losing any quality prior to final output.
This my friends is a thing of sheer beauty.
Now time to get down to business! I got work to do!
I saw a awesome video and I want to capture one of its stills and save as jpeg or bmp so that i can set it as wallpaper, any free software available that can help me.
Have you tried AutoScreenRecorder? This allows you to save streaming video as a movie, then you should be able to take a screen grab from a single frame.
I need to record my screen and save it as gif instead of video format, it doesn't need any audio just video,
please tell me what is the best software to use
I will use on powerpoint presentation
Why use a gif when powerpoint can handle many video formats anyway?
but to answer your question, it would probably be best to use a standard screen recorder and them convert to .gif afterwards.
Hi every one,
I like to collect movie trailers to a folder on my computer but not all trailers are downloadable. Question: Does anyone know of a freeware program that would allow me to "capture" the movie trailer from my computer screen?
yeah theres a program called HyperCam try googling it, its only a trial but i dont think the full version is that much allthough the trial does allow you to do all you need, just not at a very big resoltion, hope this helps,
I was doing a screen capture of a video on You Tube when this bsod occurred;1st since updating to windows 10 Pro. This bsod was a light blue color with very little writing, but didn?t get error code/report as to why it happened but did disable auto reboot.
No dumps in the zip file you uploaded. Do you run any kind of hard drive cleaner, like CCleaner? If so stop using it until this problem is resolved.
Please make sure your PC is configured for small dump files:

If you get another BSOD, check C:\Windows\minidump to see if a .dmp file was created there. If yes, run DM_Log_collector again and up[load zip here.
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?

Attached are the options. I'll be capturing streaming videos from godtube.com to make a compilation. I will need to use Windows DVD Maker to burn these as well on to a DVD so swf is not an option.
What compressor options also?
Some videos (from other sites) are also HD DVD quality streaming, so I need to try to live up to that as well.

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.
When I try to capture a fullscreen opengl application, or a QML application, or WPF application, the captured image is black. It seems that graphic card content can't be acquired...
It is the same for each computer which is under windows 7.
This manipulation worked on windows XP.
what are the changes on screen capturing between windows XP and windows 7 ?
how can I resolve this problem ?
is there any option to activate in system ?
is there any software which could work (with an API) ?
Thank you very much,

Occasionally, I would like to capture an on-screen video. I have downloaded and tried three and so far this one I like best of those I tried. If anyone has recommendations based on personal experience and personal use, I would appreciate your comments.
Here are my requirements:
I am willing to pay up to $50.
It has to be free of ads.
It has to be free of trial restrictions.
It cannot be a web-based program or require an internet connection to run.
I just used LiteCam HD and It's quite fast and easy to use .The only downside is that there is a visible watermark and side control panel when recording with this software. The recording quality is in clear HD.
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?
Thanks for any opinions
I use Camtasia and Fraps. you can play with the settings to reduce file size. focus on file format, screen resolution and frame rate.3 more replies
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.
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.
Does anybody know if there are any capture cards that are actually recognized by the Vista OS?
I recently got my laptop from dell and vista works fine its just the fact i would like to get a USB port Capture Card.
Anybody have any advice for me?
I recently purchase a DIY desktop computer but it does not come with a firewire port. I installed one on the pci slot and it was detected by the computer.
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.
I would appeciate alot for any answer to my problems.
Toshiba Qosmio G30-155 Video capture does not work through the ports of the video in (Windows Vista Ultimate x86) BIOS version 3.90 win
Video capture is not working in Windows Media Center, even if selected as the input port composite or s-video ports in the settings of Windows Media Center.
In BIOS settings version 3.90 via esc-F1 may select only this options: NTSC (USA), NTSC (Japan), PAL (S-video).
It is noticeable that the laptop is supposedly in capture mode NTSC for composite input
Somebody turned on to make this model of laptop video capture via composite video input with the new version of BIOS (version 3.90 win)?
Can you please explain to us what do you want to do exactly?
Long time ago I had this old Qosmio with TV tuner and antenna in port so I used it to transfer my old videos from VHS format and burn movie DVDs.
For this purpose I didn?t use Windows Media Center. Why you don?t use some other recording application. I think anyone is better than Windows Media Center.
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?

I have a Strong Model SRT5022X Set Top Box. Not HD
When I connect a S-Video cable from yhe box to my video capture unit all I get is black and white pictures
The connection to the tv is excellent
Why is this so and how do I get a colour picture
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.

What problem are you having installing this card?
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?
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)

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.
Can someone here give me good advice???.
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??
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 google.co.ukPersonally I'd stay away from the cheap software encoders at about ?25-?40 and get a slightly more expensive hardware encoder.2 more replies

I could go USB but Im not sure of the availability of the USB lead for the camers, its a polytech version and all the cables have mysteriously gone missing..

As soon as I saw the names 'Dazzle' and VideoWave I knew what the problem was. There's no easy way to say this but this combo rarely works, and with rare support from Roxio. If you want less hassle reinvest; Pinnacle, Ulead and Sonic Foundry are good progs, and Canopus capture cards are good.

The guys at the computer shop tell me I need a video capture card, a good cheap one might have the Pinnacle brand but nobody at the shop has any actual experience having succesfully recorded anything. They also say I need lots of hard disk space for a 2 hour film or so.
Am not much tech-oriented, so I'd appreciate layman-type explanations please. I'm also looking for an inexpensive card, just for to make simple vcd's. What kind of software should I use or does it come with the card. Also can I record from VHS with this.
Hope somebody here can help out. Thanks in advance.
Look at this thread. There is a link there that might be of some help.
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). My computer is a HP Pavilion 775y, I have Windows XP as well. That's about all the info I can provide off the top of my head, if anyone could help me out I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Anyone know of a way to record basically what you see on your monitor - software wise? I've been able to record by doing video out to another computer or VCR, but the quality sucks and it's a hassle. I'm wanting to record game footage when playing games online. Any help?
Cam studio from http://www.rendersoftware.com/products/camstudio/ works for this purpose and it's free
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.
See the replies from year 2006 in Nvidia Dawn (fairy) demo on ATI cards.
Everything seems fine, until I turn my 360/ps2/camera on, up until then, I can set everything up to capture video, I can even plug the device in, but as soon as I turn it on, my computer immediately BSOD's and gives me the mini.dmp/xml errors, I've uploaded the dmp here..
Hope you guys can help figure this out! I've tried several Nvidia drivers and WDM drives for capturing, all with the same result, before I reformatted, they worked fine.

Hi, my question is concerning the software PCTV to go. I recently bought a new toshiba satellite laptop running windows vista. I installed the PCTV to go software and it worked for several days. Then a few days later while I was running the program, the computer just died. I re-booted, had difficulty opening the PCTV to go program a few times, ended up uninstalling it and re-installing it several times. Now when I double click on the icon, it acts like it's about to run, but no window ever opens.
When I look at Windows task manager, it says that program is running and using up a lot of resources, but there is no window anywhere. PCTV to go still works fine on my older computer (or at least as well as it ever did, which isn't great).
Is there a conflict with windows vista? Is there a corrupted file somewhere (again, I have uninstalled and reinstalled at least 4 times). Please help. Thank you.

Is anyone out there familiar with the Broadway video capture card and its software??
Wes, what is it that you want to know? I've never used it, but if you're looking for reviews, we might know where to send you.
I purchased a Radeon 7500 AIW and it came with lame video capture software(ULead). Have also been trying Pinnacle, I like it but I can't get it to run well on my computer. Anybody have any other capture software to suggest? By the way, capturing with analogue video (not DV).
I don't use any myself, but others here do.
As for the problem with Pinnacle, whats the problem? Also, what is the version of Windows?
I have EasyCAP which is capture device that capture video and audio from composite or S-video source. It is connected to the computer using USB.
I have installed the driver and it is working fine. "Ulead VideoStudio SE DVD" software came with device CD but you have to set the appropriate video and audio type. I also have noise because I didn't know how to set the audio.The video is working fine.
I want a program that can detect the video type (PAL,NTSC.) and audio type.
-my device can capture both PAL and NTSC videos
-I work with PAL and NTSC devices
- I have windows 7 ultimate 32bits
I have a easycap and it is working fine, Which easycap do you have ?
I know that this is a good programme:
Not sure if this is the correct forum but here goes...
I have a 46HM95 Toshiba TV. I play my XBOX 360 on this tv and I would like to hook up a video capture device to capture clan matches. Here is my problem...The video out put in the back of the TV dose not out put the input 4 channel, which is the HD channel and the channel I play my xbox on. So my questions is, is there anyway I could get a device that would not have to hook to the TV output So I can still play in HD and be able to capture the game. Any suggestions would be great.
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 "wmvtoaviconverter.net" 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?
Thanks in advance,
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.
I am trying to figure out how to get my IEEE 1394 firepath card to be listed under video capture devices. I have a sony dv camcorder hooked to it and it works fine with the MGI Videowave 3 program that came with the 1394 card. The card is listed in the device manager under 1394 Bus Controller as Texas Instruments OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host controller. How do I get it to be listed under video devices in multimedia? Thank you, Ted. [email protected]
One post per topic please.
I have been trying to capture video with my ASUS V3800 TNT2 card.
Unfortunatly, I have not had much succes at it.
I have just downloaded the Detonater 3 drivers, but I doubt that will help much. The problem is this:
I do get an image when I try to capture with either the ASUSLive program that came with the card or Adobe Premiere 5.1 - the only problem is that the image appears distorted. I assume this is because I have not selected the right video format (NTSC, PAL etc.) The only problem is that neither of the formats seem to fix the problem.
I was wondering if there was any way I could be able to use other formats?
I live in Denmark, and own a Phillips VCR - I think the output signal is PAL-60, but I am not sure. Is there any way to find out?
I would check the manufacturer's support site for help
I have a strange problem with my video, composite, capture. If I use
Premiere or Windows Movie Maker and set the capture to composite I get TV signal instead. If I use Intervideo Win DVR it works fine. In all instances the default capture program is Conexant Capture.
I checked my drivers in system devices and they look ok, I did see a Legacy capture driver there but don?t know what it?s for, besides win dvr works. I played with program settings in both programs but can?t figure this one out.
The TV tuner card is a Prolink PVBT878P+
I?m running XP Pro SP2.
I hope someone can point me in the right direction.
I have a MSI NX6600GT VTD128 video card. It has a HDTV / VIVO connector that came with it. It has a connection on the card that is for said connector and is listed in the manual as being, among other things for Video - In. Actually, the connector has a super-video in and a "comp-in". The later is an RCA jack.
My original error message was "No capture device found". I got this with all three programs that I tried that was capable of capturing video. Since I was unable to find any proof on my computer that I had a capture card, I searched for drivers for capture devices.
I did finally come up with a driver for the capture aspect. "2.20_wdm-vivo.exe" After installing this, I no-longer got the "No capture device found" messages. Now I get "The device is busy, please close any other applications using the device and retry." I am unable to find anything else that could be using it. I have rebooted (amazing how many times that can actually solve a problem), and still I get the same error.
Venturing a guess, I am wondering if the card may be used as video in OR video out (i.e. my monitor), but not both at the same time.
Does anyone have any suggestions on getting it to work? I did a good bit of searching on-line and everything I found was other people asking how to get it working also. (Not just my card, but others as well.)
I have installed the latest Nvidia drivers.

I have a video capture card with no documentation on how to use it! I have a digital JVC digital video camera which uses the vhsc tapes. My system has a AMD K6-2 450mhz processor with 160mg. of memory, 2 8gig. hard drives and a 30gig. hard drive. I know that I have the equipment and room to transfer my video to my hard drives, but how do I set this mess up? I have RCA patch cords also. The camera has several RCA jack openings on it also. Can you help me?

Does anyone know if the Dazzle Video Creator 80 is the same as the DVC90? I want to do this with it
And I can't seem to find the 90 anywhere. I just need to know if the configuration will be the same with both the 80 and the 90, and what the differences are between them.
heres a link to the spec comparrison -
basically it looks like the 9.0 only works on newer 2.0 usb, has a better resolution and supports more outputs. None of this hsould matter when it comes ot the actual capture of footage (except for the resolution).
Windows XP Service Pack 3. I figured this forum would be the best place for this problem, it is not related to a specific program or device (at least not that I can tell). I couldn't find a specific thread about camcorders. I recently bought a camcorder (JVC GR-D870U) and it has been working just fine, I am able to take still pictures (SD card) and video recording (Digital Video Cassette). The problem comes when I attempt to capture video from the cassette to my PC via a DV Cable (or firewire).
My Firewire controller appears in Device Manager as an IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controller. All necessary drivers have been installed and appear to be functioning, the camcorder is correctly identified, a dialogue box appears asking what program I want to use it with ect.
However, when I open windows movie maker it takes me to the dialogue box that lets me select quality, after I click Next, the mouse cursor turns into the hourglass and the process sits there indefinitely. Similarly, when I try to capture video with ULead Video Studio 8, I get to select quality, click next, and a dialogue appears saying "An Uxpected Error has Occured". There is no more information.
I've already checked a few other forums (that I found on Google) and most people said that JVC camcorders are well-known to get along best with the Texas Instruments chipset (for firewire cards). Should I buy a different card, of is it not necessary?
Not all firewire cards are fully compliant with the specs. You might want to check into that. JVC may utilize some little something that your card does not support. You might try a friend's computer for a test run.
So I'm about to begin work on a project that entails recording everything seen/done on the desktop. I thought I would need a video capture card, but that doesn't seem to do what I need it to do.
What would I need to record a video file of desktop activity directly to the hdd?
You need a Screen Recording application.
TechSmith was offering there Camtasia Studio 3 for free back in November, not sure if the offer is still good. (Current version is 5.1
This is the link to the article about the free offer: http://www.downloadsquad.com/2007/11/22/techsmith-offers-free-camtasia-studio-download/
Or just google for screen recorder. There are some free ones out there, but I have no idea what features they have.
I just bought recently an external video capture box called "VideoHome XTV 2.0". Since I am new to this hardware and its software, I would like to ask information what is the ideal or best file type, video size, frame rate, video quality and video bit rate for capturing or recording tv programs? The default parameters of the VideoHome 2.0 for capturing/recording are the following: File type = MPEG-2, Video size = 640 x 480, Frame rate = 25, Video Quality = 0 (fastest), Video bit rate = 3500 kps. Is the default okay or there are better parameters? Please, I need your technical advice.More replies
I don't know if you are allowed to recommend certain brands and such. If not that's okay as this is mostly a curiosity question. I would like to copy home movies and VHS tapes to disc. I was wondering is there a device that would allow me to do this by a remote signal to my PC from the TV through a video or TV card or would I have to run a cable from my PC to the VCR itself to do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
I have a problem that requires some help. I have just installed a TV capture card. It is a "Super TV Tuner". I want to capture video and audio from my camcorder which has 2 RCA plugs coming out of the camera, One for video and one for audio. Here is the problem, There is one RCA video plug on the capture and a small (not RCA) audio out plug that goes to the sound card. Thereby, I cannot hook the RCA audio plug to either my sound card or to my capture card via this RCA audio from the camcorder. Is there a cable configuration that will allow me to hook the sound from the camcorder via RCA plugs to either the sound card or the capture card? It seem that I would need a Y cable that will fit somewhere at the capture board or the sound card. The Y would have to have a place to hook the RCA pin and also the small pin that the sound card line-in needs. Please, if anyone can help me, I would appreciate very much.
actually you would connect the cable to the sound card. Line in or Mic in. Line in if your sound card has that.the plug that goes from the capture card to the sound card is so that you can here audio that is part of cable tv or similar input.
i have a butt load of old home videos i need to get onto dvds as well as a nice sized collection of just vhs movies. I bought a $70 DVC 80 and sadly...it is a peice. I was wondering if i am going to get better resaults with the DVC 150 or some other product.
the problems with the DVC 80 is a high frame droping problem, somewhat lacking in the quality department, and the fact that i lost the CD with the drivers and capturing program on it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a decent but somewhat old (2-3 years old) camcorder and I'm curious as to what I'd need to do to save some of my home movies from the camera onto my hard drive.
Is there specific software and/or hardware I'd need?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
You'll need a 'capture' card for analogue. If you're going to do this a lot it's worth getting a decent one like Canopus, but a cheaper one if not. The less expensive will not give the same quality though. I use Video Factory from http://www.sonicfoundry.com or some folks use Pinnacle (Video Wave is no good).
I would like to capture frames from television onto my computer so I can post them online. I think what I need is a video capture card but i'm not sure. Can someone reccommend all the hardware and software I need for this? If this isn't possible, capturing them from a VCR would also work. Somebody already posted this but I still don't know exactly what I need to buy.
You need a video capture card such as any of the ATI All In Wonder Raedon cards which are very good video display cards with built in TV/VCR/Digital Cameras support and ATI also makes a dedicated card with for digital capture only called TV Wonder VE:
Or Pinnacle Systems dedicated capture cards:
Alot depends on how good a final product you want to end up with and how elaborate the editing features you need. I am no expert at this as i have only played around with video editing. If you are really serious about this on a semi professional level, it seems from what i read that Macintoshes are better suited for the job.
I recently bought Roxio easy VHS to DVD and I can not get it to recognize the capture device from my VCR. I tried downloading driver fixes to no avail. And I downloaded other video software but still nothing.

So, where do i need to go to get a device that will record the video from an xbox? (high def preferred, hdmi/component )
Maybe this will help: YouTube - How To Record Your Video Games
But that is an awful lot of effort. Maybe a seperate camera that you can place in a better location than the built in one will suffice. Then you can use any old screen capture program for recording.

The Turtle Beach folk say the problem may be an old driver from a previous capture device that hasn't been fully uninstalled.
I did have an Adaptec capture device installed. I have uninstalled every program related to it and have run a search on each of the programs and have deleted all references. I've also gone into the registry and deleted all references. I've also uninstalled and deleted all references to another video editing program I had.
I've gone through each of these, and other, processes multiple times. Same result.
I'm going not so slowly out of my mind and if you can provide the solution I will send you some blue ribbon award-winning spaghetti sauce if you like.

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!
