Transfer video to cd

by GuruOfDos In reply to Transfer video to cd

You need an analogue video capture card. The one I recommend and use profesionally is a FAST Multimedia AVMAster 2000, but any half decent video capture card will do. Avoid anything by Pinnacle (DC10, etc) as they produce pretty shabby results.

The Fast AVMaster captures both audio and video on the same card by means of a 4pin mini-din for S-Video or a Phono/RCA connector for composite video. Stereo or mono audio is connected to the card via a 3.5mm stereo jack. The card is used to create an AVI file from source video tape which can then be burned onto CD. One word of caution. Many hardware capture cards require an identical card fitted in the playback computer to decode the video information. Make sure that when you capture the video,you convert the format to the standard Microsoft Video for Windows format, so that it can be decoded on any Windows machine.

I do this professionally for creating police training media from video sources, so if ya need any more help, just holler!
