Video Capture


oppdretiree

Question

I need to buy a analog to digital converter to capture video from a VCR to EMC8. There are a few on the market that MAY work....PLEXTOR, AVERMEDIA, etc. In trying to find which ones may be compatible with EMC8, I contacted the support page of ROXIO and found the following link. BUT...everytime I try to access the link, I get a message that "it is not accessible now...try later. Does anyone have one a digital converter and have captured video from a VCR to EMC 8? If so, what model do you have and has it worked well for you? (PS...how much did the converter cost?

 

Also, I believe that the converter comes with "capture software"will the converter software software conflict with my "video capture card" ( GE Force 5200)?

 

Thanks,

 

Dan

I didn't think USB2 was supported in Roxio 8. I have an adaptec Video Oh and I must use the software that came w/ the program to capture. Once I capture, I can use videowave to edit and mydvd to make a DVD.

I know that several have posted that the Plextor works and the Dazzle (not sure which model - 80 I think). My sister has an Avermedia PCI capture card that works with version 7, but I don't know if it works with version 8. Just make sure that if you choose USB that it is USB2. USB1 is not fast enough for full DVD quality capture.

 

Having more than one capture device should not be a problem. They each would have their own driver and should be selectable in the software if both are recognized.

Jeff - yes USB is supported. Just depends on the device. I have a USB2 webcam and I can record just fine with it in Media Import. It really boils down to the DRIVERS. I don't know why, but seems like analog capture devices have some of the worst written drivers around.

 

Yes, I forgot about the Web Cam. I just indicated that My video Oh doesn't capture into Roxio 8 in my post.

 

Yes,the do have lousy driver and they rarely update them as well and that might compound to the problem.

I have just bought EMC8 and I used a Tevion Tuner card from ALDI at a cost of £24 it will also allow TV to be viewed on your computer. The model No. Tevion Xpert TV7134 Tuner card.. There is a similar one with V-Stream called PVR Plus but I forget where I picked it up. Hope this helps they are supplied with software,
