Is it possible to play back VCR on a computer? If yes, how to go about?

Cheers

Plug it into a tv-in port,either on a tv card or video card with vivo.

Do I need special software to play back? Have you tried it before?

If its a TV tuner. You need the program for it and the drivers so it runs. And some programs like the Leadtek TV tuners have an option for external video etc.. Just plug in whatever and change the option.

Why do you want to view video thru a PC for?? Just get a IDE DVD. Heaps better and clearer.
