Anyone have any software that you can use to record live video off your PC. Like if you where to play something in WM record the video right out off WM. Like something from the internet that will not let you save the file only play it-I need something I can record the video. Like easy audio capture need easy video capture!! Right!!!!

I've not tried it but I think Snagit! will do this for you.  It's not free.

Not sure if this is what you are after but I am running "Snagit" version 8 on my notebook computer and once it is configured for audio/video capture, I use it to record or capture audio and video from programs on my computer to make different tutorials. The capture is an avi file that I later burn to a disc.

There is a free 30 day trial of the Snagit 8 if you would like to try it. www.techsmith.com

But doesn't Snagit record what is on the screen (similar to Windows Media Encoder) , i.e.in this case the file playing in some player, not the video itself? Of course one could set the capture area to be just the video, but I don't think the quality would be bery good.

For some streaming media, Super can capture and save the file to hard drive (the URL must point to the file).

Real Player 11 (beta) will also download and save the medis file if it is not protected.

I was able to get Snagit to record a tv program that was showing on my monitor with no problem.  No sound of course, but a decent picture.  Just set it for Video Capture mode instead of the default Image mode.

Yeah I tried it Jean and the quality wasn't very good.Another thing I found is when you use it for Video capture the size limit is 2Gb.Any larger and the file bombs.

In the options you chose for just the Video capture, Paul, wasn't there an option to also capture the audio and video both ?? When I capture video on my monitor I also capture audio, BUT it is from my mic. So maybe that's the only way you can capture audio that is coming from other than the internal computer audio when using Snagit. I have never tried that yet. For capturing audio and video from my TV, I use my Dazzle 150 unit and that works O.K.

Frank, the 'include audio' button was checked but it did not record it.  Might be something I need to set on my sound card.  I didn't spend much time with it and allowed it to use the default settings (of which audio was 1).

You might try Jing by the same company that makes SnagIt. It is free for now until they decide if it is worth marketing.  The videos are limited to 5 minutes and the audio is recorded from your microphone rather than the audio on the moview you are watching.

Since the thread started, I have finally figured out how to capture Video AND audio from my monitor screen desktop using Snagit. (I had a little help from a Tech however :>). The resulting video was pretty good quality, I thought. After capturing a TV program and saving it, I played it in WMP as an avi file. I looked for any sync problems between the video and audio and there was none that I could detect.

When I captured the TV program I had set the options in Snagit to capture the entire screen, so when it plays there are portions of the video where you see other parts of my screen. This can be eliminated by setting the options to just capture a portion of the screen however. The resulting 1 minute 23 sec. file I captured was just under 69 MB in size.

Doing what the original OP wanted to accomplish certainly depends a lot on what hardware and software is on the computer, that's for sure.

Pinnacle's Dazzle DVC90 seems to do a pretty good job of capturing.  S-Video or Video Out connects to the Dazzle which connects to a USB port on your workstation.  Software such as VideoWave or DVD Maker (comes with the Dazzle box) collects the input and sends it to an output file (or directly to DVD/CD).  Selectable resolution (resulting in BIG file size changes of course).  Files > 5GB can be collected - not sure what the max is but that equates to 1hr 20 minutes at DVD-HQ (MPEG-2) format.

That's what I do with my Dazzle 150 also. That's O.K but when you want to capture something that is playing on your monitor (say like a video playing in WMP) it's a different story. When WMP is playing on the monitor it is playing using it's program and NOT the "screen" itself. To eliminate that if it's playing in WMP, open WMP and on the TOOLS menu click on OPTIONS and then on the PERFORMANCE (tab) and in the "Video Acceleration" area, move the slider clear to the "NONE" end. Now it will be playing on the Screen itself. WMP has a layered playing area. One for the screen and one for the program itself from what I have been told.
