Looking for Free Video Capture Program - Any suggestions?
Posted 26 October 2012 - 03:39 AM
Got an older laptop (about 1.2ghz, XP) that I want to hookup to my TV using the monitor hookup so I can record the input video (basically a cheap DVR).
Dont really care about quality (my laptop hdd is small so I dont want big video files anyway), just want the video to be fairly clear and the audio synched.
Any suggestions for a freeware program?

Again, if I misunderstood your setup, then I apologize for the lecture.
I think I may have a problem...

Question is, is it over-the-air signals or cable TV signals you're trying to capture as there's a difference in capture devices if it has to do cable, OTA or both.
They range from cheap ($20-$30) up to a couple hundred dollars. Plus, since you're using XP, you'd either have to get one with software to do the capture or have Windows Media Center version of XP installed which they did on later XP-type laptops (2005 and later).
