    VCR video to CD?

    Does anyone have a video card that can output to a VCR? I need to convert a VCR video to CD format.

    If anyone can do this with their computer, I'd be more than happy to pay a price to get it done. Or if you know any shop that can get it done, please post up.

    Thanks all.

    My camcorder will do this. I just plug the VCR into the camera using regular old A/V cables, and plug the camera into the computer using Firewire. Then you just hit one menu setting and hit play on the VCR and capture on the computer. Then you just do the regular old thing to get that video into VCD format. I'd be happy to help out, but I'm way out in Chilliwack.

    Hey Boone,

    This is probably about a 2 hr. video. Is there a limit on it? Also, do you have a burner so we can convert the file to a CD afterwards?

    Yep, I've got a burner, but I've only burnt one SVCD just to try it out, I'm not sure how long you can stick on one CD, especially without the quality going to crap. Can always spread it over 2 CD's if needed.
