Viseo Capture

Ok, so I finally figured out my problem with video. Yes, I was, (*looks around for the DMCA Copyright police*), attempting to capture video from a DVD. Apparently, that copyright protection scheme is even better than I thought. Even though, it played through the capture card, and appeared to be recording, all I got was 1 1/2 hours of a 2 second loop.

I guess there must be an underlying carrier signal coming in on the line that interferes with the capture capability. I guess that means, one of two options. Either I try bringing the video in on a VCR or I just bite the bullet and buy the DVDs I want. I'm not even sure if the VCR method will work. I'll have to try that later.

Now don't get me wrong, I do buy DVDs. My collection is still small, but I have about 20 movies and the first season of QAF. So I've already invested about $400. It's just, there are some that I wouldn't mind having, but not enough to warrant spending the $20 on.

This is all a new experience for me. This is the first computer I've built with a video capture card. I've never had the opportunity to play with this technology before. I'm experimenting.

At least I know I can do "home videos" through the capture card. Yeah, I'm sure people are interested in seeing me on video.

Oh well, I've played enough for one day. I need to run in and get ready for work. I'll play with it some more later.
