vhs ripping


Greetings folks,

wasn't sure what forum this should go in...

Does anyone know of an oss package that will let you rip a vhs cassette either to the hard-drive, or to dvd. I have a fairly high spec machine (2.8GHz P4, 1 GB fast RAM, 128 MB Geforce FX card, etc.)

I understand the nvidia card supports using the vcr as input. Does dvd::rip do this?

Kudos in advance

I suspect you would need a TV card and TV software, plug the VCR into the TV card rather than an arial, tune your TV software to your VCR then record using the TV software

Thanks phil.d.g

There's an s-video input into the card (Geforce FX 5200)

Would this do the A-D conversion that the TV-tuner does?

On KDETV it lets me choose port 202 as the input device.

Maybe I am missing the point altogether :-D

Are you sure its an input, I have MSI GeForce FX5200 TD128 and it has no inputs, it has a composite output and one of those digital things (DVI ?) aswell as the VGA output, but thats it, no input

Not sure. I know _very_ little about hardware. I have the input for the monitor
On the other side, theres's a white 28-pin connector and in between there's a round connector, which I thought was s-video (?????????)

Sounds the same as mine

Not too sure of the naming conventions but thats an output, and I think its called composite. You can buy an adaptor so that you can plug it into a s-video lead.

The other day, I was using it to drive my TV, so I definately know its an output and you can't plug your VCR into it.

Thanks.

I reckoned I'd have to buy some kind of device. Also, its an older vcr, so I'll have to do a bit of research...

Thanks again
