    Default how to capture video with Windows Movie Maker

    How do I capture video games and VHS with WMM?
    Do I need a special Video card?
    I assume I need a special wire to connect the VCR to the computer-which is the cheapest one?
    Any advice?
    Thank you

    it really depends what kind of computer you have. My computer has 3 RCA jacks right in the front of it so i can just plug in and capture, but if you really need to know,

    I'm a newbie as well, and I am trying to capture from VHS, but from what I have learned so far you need:

    A pretty good spec m/c (600MHz+)
    A capture card or an A2D converter

    I understand that an A2D converter is the better option and I have gone for a Datavideo DAC100 (www.datavideo-tek.com). But with this path your PC needs firewire. Mine came with firewire, but I believe they are cheap to aquire.

    The VCR plugs into the A2D converter via composite video, then the A2D converter plugs into the PC via firewire. Then you need capture software.

    WinXP come with Window Movie Maker, but you can get WinDV and DVIO from the web.

    Hope this helps
