View Full Version : what is the best way to capture reg 8 /vhs

I want to archive video on a hardrive using the toaster as the capture device
what settings would be good to get VHS quality on the playback of a video clip
on a hard drive. should I capture it as dv ? and convert it? or capture with another codec/setting? The client wants to use the hardrive in a windows media center edition pc and just playback the movies off the hard drive.

the original footage is 8mm analog and some DV tapes

I would guess you can use any of the compressed/uncompressed avi's for playback. Also, check out THIS THREAD (http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=34462&highlight=windows+media+encoder+codec) for WME info.
