connecting analogue camcorder to pc

  colcol 16:58 18 Apr 2003

I have a pc running windows xp with a radeon 8500 graphics/video card. I have a composite TV socket and TV out.
I also have an old analogue camcorder (Panasonic vhs(c) pal.
I want to be able to view the tapes from the camcorder on my pc.
could someone pse tell me where to start.
I have tried connecting the video and audio connections on the camcorder with the composite tv socket on the pc but this appears to achieve nothing.

I think what you need is a video capture card for analog devices. It will allow you to capture video from your camcorder and VHS machine.

if you are bothered about the sound being in stereo you can buy a tv card for about £30-£40. This will let you connect as you would to a video recorder. Hauppauge wintv go works ok.

You can purchase a USB conecter from Pinnacle, for connecting analogue camcorders to a PC.
You can view your fims and edit them on Windows movie Maker.
For better results try Pinnacle studio 8 edeting software.
Hope this helps.
