I have a movie, which plays OK in Windows Media Player 9, and which I'd like to record onto an ordinary VCR tape. My PC, a Dell Latitutde laptop, has an S-Video socket. Do I just coonect a cable to this and plug the other end into my phono Video-In socket on the VCR, play the movie and press Record on the VCR?
I haven't got a cable yet to try this because I don't want to waste money on the wrong cable.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to record a movie from a PC onto a VCR tape?
If your tv has AV 1/2/3/ etc. and the video same should work ok. Cable costs about £15 BUT I think you could get one cheaper at Maplins. Shame Tandy gave up over here. I bought all kinds of cables from them in the past.
I used the same hook up as you require for my DVCam and videoed the school play ok
will not go into the whole copywrite thing here but if its legal then you will probally have an svideo out to composite adapter that came with you graphics card(seven pin or 4 pin svid to ixphono-yellow plug)buy a composite to scart adapter(£5-£10 in argos/maplins)and run to the video av in.to record select the av ch.then select the av channel to record the video.
