I was wanting to convert some VHS tapes to DVDs. I was wondering what is needed (Hardware and software) to do this. I have a DVD burner on my Desktop computer. Could someone suggest the appropriate hardware, software, or websites.
First you need to convert your analog video to digital format; (AVI, MPG) so you would be able to convert it to DVD. You will need an analog video capture device or if you have a miniDV camcorder with analog video input, you can convert it on the fly. Connect your AV output from your VCR to your AV Input in the camcorder. Connect your camcorder via firewire and capture it through your video editing program or any of the free capture softwares available on the net.
