Video Capture

I have a video capture card, not TV card in my box, question is, which app is best for capturing VHS from my video camera and converting to mpeg/avi to later edit and burn to DVD.

Oh were to start. Lets see.
Gv4l - front-end to transcode
streamer - front-end to xawtv.
ffmpeg - command line

All have different capture qualitys all have some draw back but all work.

I preferr ffmpeg because it will enccode straight to mpeg2 at svcd resulotion.
I then use avidemux to convert to dvd and qdvdaurthor to do the DVD aurthoring
