    Default Connecting video to PC

    Do I need a video capture card to view my VHS tapes on my PC or do I just need to get a cable to join the two units?

    do u want to use ur computer screen as a tv or do u want to actually transfer ur vhs tape to computer? if you want to transfer it to computer then u would need a video capture card,if u just want to play them using the computer screen u will still need a video capture card, one that has a tv/video in port, so u can connect ur vcr to the computer with the normal video cable that would work with ur tv and vcr.
    hope that helped.

    cheers,

    dhooper,

    I've never tried this, but a TV tuner card might work - you might be able to tune it in to your VCR signal. I have a feeling that a TV tuner card might just be cheaper than a video capture card. Worth looking into anyway.

    Many TV Tuner cards also have a direct video input (RCA AV).

    I have a FlyVideo 98 card that has, its designed for Windows 98 (and it works under XP, using the NT drivers)

    You will need a reasonable amount of cpu speed, at least 500 Mhz I believe, and resolution is OK, but can look pretty grainy at full screen.

    A 667MHz PIII will not do full screen.
