Simple software to view composite video

  Gingerland 16:17 23 Jan 2007

Hello chaps

does anyone know of any incredibly simple software to view a composite video input on a PC, please?
The video comes in on a Belkin Hi speed USB 2.0 DVD Creator. The software supplied with the device is too complicated for my customers needs, he just want to be able to view the software in real time, simple as that. No recording, nothing.

Many thanks

A Free download
Irfanview might do it- it does pretty well all else.
Or even Windows media player
Give them a whirl any way before getting too stuck in.

If you find one please do tell as I have a belkin device that I use to make DVD's using the supplied Ulead or Nero Vision Express. These programmes recognise the capture device and then render the captured files to DVD format.

Thanks for the suggestion jack.
Irfanview appears to be confiurable to view all types of imaging and video files, but not live video.
Similar with media player.

Any more suggestions, please?
