Video question

Can I ask what everyone is using to take the videos and how are you getting them uploaded on the pc/net? I have a JVC compact VHS camcorder. Can I get video from it to upload to my pc? Otherwise, all I have is my cell phone or a digital camera that will take 30 sec clips.

Any help/advice or direction would be GREATLY appreciated!

I use my little Kodak that does still and I think about 5 min. Of video.
You would need the software and the USB cable to upload your video from your camcorder. I'm not a great one to answer I'm semi techno illiterate
I do know you either need the cable or a memory card to upload the pics.
Can you get a larger (more space) memory card for your still camera so you can get more video on it?

Have you seen those little "straight to Youtube" video cameras? They are not too expensive at wal-mart. I've thought of getting one just for my youtube moments

Actually after I posted this I browsed through walmart's website. I think I found just the one I want and it's not too spendy.


Here is the recorder:
Walmart.com: Flip Ultra F230 White 30-Minute Digital Camcorder, 1GB Internal Memory: Camcorders

Here are the reviews and there is actually a video posted.
Flip Ultra F230 White 30-Minute Digital Camcorder, 1GB Internal Memory Reviews - Walmart.com

Doesn't seem to bad for the price. The picture of the video looks pretty decent. I just might invest in one of these.

Wow, that's exactly the one I have been eying and was going to suggest.

Get the little flexible tripod if they have them still. I have one and they are great when you're alone and want to set it down to record something. You can wrap the legs around a tree limb or anything.

Hellooooo . Sorry for the late reply I have been really busy with work down here. Right so if I guessed it right you are trying to transfer your VHS videos onto the computer?

Usually this can be done by buying an external DVD-RW like the LG GSA-E20N Super Video to DVD Multi Drive. The drive comes with the software which helps you transfer your videos onto your computer or from your VHS video to directly onto a DVD Disk.

Although the one touch button is good however one thing to note, that is, if your VHS video is more than 2 hours (lets say for example) and you click on One Touch Recording, it will only record upto the space of the DVD Disk I.e. 1h30mins(lets say for example).

This means that you will loose out 30mins of the video which was recorded onto the VHS.

Solution? Well the best thing is to use the software provided with the Drive and transfer the VHS video onto your machine/Computer. Then use the software to encode and record onto the DVD. The software will automatically detect the size of the DVD and will make 3 or 4 playlist for you. With that, you will be able to fit a whole VHS video into 2 DVDs.

There are other methods to fit the video into one DVD but I don't think you would want to shrink and loose quality of the video.

One more thing before I wrap it up. You would need Audio/Video Cables if you want to record from your VHS Video Recorder to DVD-RW under one touch otherwise it will not work.

Hope this helps .

Oh and if any questions fire it away .

Regards
