I been on the computer for awile,but never tried this.I have a regular camcorder,not digital.I have a usb connection for my still dig camera that fits into camcorder.I have been looking on the web,but it looks like most needs some kind of hardware to install.Is there an easier way to capture video with some kind of software download that doesnt cost an arm and a leg?I dont want for live webcam,just want to be able to edit and see video on computer.I have a p3 450 mhz.....thanx for any help

Sorry Bronc, you have to purchase a "Video Capture Card". They are pricey! ATI has some good stuff on the market. Also check for a Web Cam setup that has a capture card. Web cams can be fun if you have family out of state and to send video mail but you can also use the card to input your video from VCR, CamCorder etc. Web cam are probably cheaper than buying just the cature card. Go figure...

TV tuner cards are not that pricey. I only gave $65.00 for mine. It also allows you watch TV in window or full sceen.
Capture still images or use as VCR, saves in .avi and .mpg formats. The only thing I would recomend is a fast processor, 500MHz or better. I have 366 Celeron it does OK.
It's an ATI TV WONDER card.
