I found it a lil buggy with the catalyst software but its great for analog captures. I found using media portal didn't work properly with my 650 tv wounder on the xp system. Nice video though keep it up 🙂 Reply chukliddell59 says: January 22, 2009 at 1:15 am i rlly like the new way u film o btw ur voice sound totally different on mic then with the camera Reply Tinkernut says: January 22, 2009 at 1:27 am yeah…i had the same issue w/ media portal as well. actually, neither one of them worked. Reply Antonio D. says: January 22, 2009 at 2:07 am Question….Why not just buy a DVD recorder and record it straight from the TV while you play the VHS tape? Reply IDillon0 says: January 22, 2009 at 2:10 am NOoo it took me forever to figure this out and now someone explains it. What a waste of time lol Reply IDillon0 says: January 22, 2009 at 2:13 am I actually did it for free though. Reply Tinkernut says: January 22, 2009 at 3:17 pm cost of a TV card – $20. Cost of a DVD recorder $100. that's why. Reply Social Experiments says: January 23, 2009 at 12:28 am you get more funnier every video you make keep up the good work Reply Darksidehearts says: January 23, 2009 at 6:55 pm I used to do this via the video camera method a long time ago but this is interesting.

Flowed well and explains the how and what, and where to get it. Awesome. Reply Kitao87 says: February 5, 2009 at 9:07 am some people dont have a dvd player capable of recording. this is cheaper. Reply AngeDeJmusic says: February 23, 2009 at 5:58 am Cool I have been wanting to know how to do this for years. O_O Reply IbrahimShambel says: February 26, 2009 at 6:31 pm You can also use a DV camcorder. Plug your VCR into it (using AV to RCA cord), attach the firewire output (from camera) to your PC and capture the VHS video using a DV capture program (e.g. Windows Movie Maker), and transfer the captured video to DVD using either the DVDflick or DeVeDe+image burner. Reply Luis Rivera says: March 8, 2009 at 1:50 pm I'm having a problem with transfering my HI8 movies from my camcorder to the pc after I bought a PCI TV TUNER CARD, the images are transfered but no sound at all using the s/video cable and connecting a small cable from tv tuner audio out to input of sound card, please help!!! Reply voorhes80 says: March 19, 2009 at 4:38 am What about those VHS's that are protected for copy? Can I make the conversion anyway? Reply sumeetle says: April 3, 2009 at 6:10 pm yes Reply voorhes80 says: April 11, 2009 at 7:53 am very well, thank you!

Reply blueandyellowguitar says: July 28, 2009 at 8:12 am help i cant find a cheap capture card, they are all like 60 bucks with software …so which ones are around 20 bucks???? thats all i need but i cant find a cheap one Reply Y2CJ3600 says: August 10, 2009 at 6:50 am man i cant wait to convert all my old vhs tapes of shows i recorded off tv to dvd one day. one thing i hate about vhs tapes like half way through the recording all the sounds goes away from the vhs tape. it's like it's on mute or something. Reply avastyelandlubber says: September 14, 2009 at 6:36 am Fuck VHS, Betamax is the future! Reply spirittoo says: December 19, 2009 at 7:12 pm You fail to mention that you have to have some kind of adapter to get the sound … why no info on that? Reply piggystardust says: December 20, 2009 at 9:53 am Nomaly, you don't need a soundcard. Reply spirittoo says: December 20, 2009 at 10:00 pm Well I'm not getting any sound and the only thing I can think of is because the audio from the VCR isn't hooked up … I don't see how you can get sound if that isn't hooked up to the computer … From what I gather that is standard procedure. Reply spirittoo says: March 25, 2010 at 1:21 am @WinVistaUser2 you are a day late and a dollar short … I figured it out months ago … and for those that don't know you have to have a special cable … two rca plugs that will fit in the back of the VCR and two mini plugs that will fit in the back of your sound card. You can't get sound without it … so thanks for nothing chump … Reply jpollorena says: April 19, 2010 at 5:28 am Does Media Portal allow me to capture S-Video or RCA (yellow cable) connections? Reply techguy3000 says: June 2, 2010 at 1:41 am @fart6000 Check Amazon.com! Reply howkemon6559 says: August 26, 2010 at 12:49 pm I hate video tape! Reply shaheertanveerakhan says: August 31, 2010 at 6:12 pm @gigafide Hey so a "video capture card" is the same thing as a "tv tuner card"? We get lots of Chinese made tv tuner cards in my country for between the equivalent of US$5 to US$8. After I'm done converting all my home-video tapes, I see no further use of the card. Should I go for one of these cards? My VCR is a an old Sony SLV-X500 that we stopped using 8 years ago, but believe it or not, it still works like a charm!

Reply laurasautographs says: December 12, 2011 at 5:41 pm do most computers come with a video capture card? Reply areamusicale says: February 8, 2012 at 2:18 pm Hi Daniel. Thanks for the tips. I managed to buy a RGB Scart to Composite RCA+S-Video Audio AV TV Adapter and a USB RCA Audio S-Video Capture Converter from eBay for $10. When I'll get the packet I'll post my outcome. Bye ! Reply areamusicale says: February 8, 2012 at 2:22 pm Woh ! Just noticed ! You paid $3.99 for your VHS player ! Awesome …… actually … did it break your tape !?

Will they have the protection on them? Reply Mr Vids, 2011 - 2020 says: December 4, 2013 at 11:05 pm I just plug my VHS player into my DVD recorder 😀 Reply brendametube says: August 2, 2018 at 2:11 am Is everything still possible to purchase and do on this video? I know that it’s a decade old instruction and I’m a decade later trying to figure out how to get my old VHS tapes onto DVDs. They are copy protectedBut it’s just for my personal use. Reply Joan Francis says: September 22, 2019 at 6:25 am I need a machine that I put a VHS in one side and a blank DVD in the other, push one button and it converts my old movies to a DVD. Doesn’t anyone make such a machine? If not, why not. Everyone has movies that need to be on the newer format. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
