Vhs to dvd


#1

What’s the most efficient way to copy from vhs to dvd? There’s a movie I’d like to convert, as it has yet to be released on dvd.


#2

All in wonder card. and an encoding program.


#3

If you look hard enough… chances are someone else has beat you to it and you can download it instead.


#4

If you have VCR, I can make a DVD out of it :wink: I don’t have a VHS VCR. But I can take normal inputs and make a DVD from them.


#5

i actually don’t have a vcr. or a tv for that matter.


#6

i’ve looked and looked, but it’s a rather obscure title.

Is that due to continually having to replace your cameras??

Nah. Although I do spend a lot on camera equipment, not having a TV has been a conscious effort. I do like watching the occasional movie, and having a TV would be good for that, but every time I’ve lived with one I’ve wasting too much time staring mindlessly into it. There’s too much else to do!


#9

Yet you have a movie on VHS?

Didn’t you read the “system requirements: TV, VCR” on the side of the tape box?


#10

w/o getting into a ‘buy a mac thing’, what’s the best PC video card & software for converting VHS to DVD? Like real ancient stuff pre-SVHS inputs…?


#11

The first response in this thread – just get a video card with inputs (like the ATI all-in-wonder), or get a DVD recorder/VHS combo.


#12

Someone wanna come hook up my all-in-wonder so I can actually use it the way it was meant to be used? I’ve had this computer for almost 4 years now and I’ve never even had cable or a vcr hooked up to it, and all the cables and plugs are all sitting pretty in the bag.


#13

On another note, now I want to watch that movie too. Hook me up when you get it copied hoshq.


#14

All the ATI cards I know have S-VHS, except for a really old 4 mb one in my junkpile. Last software I played with was era “Video-Toaster”.
Is anyone on htmf really into desktop video?


#15

Dude that was funny. :laughing:

hence the reason why i want to convert it, so i don’t have to buy these otherwise needless things.

Jackal? Jackal. It’s a jackal!


#18

edge loading VCR w IDE interface fits 5 1/4" slot?
:laughing: :laughing:
had a gizmo for backing up my HDD to VHS once… sounds semi-retarded in 2004!
