Video Capture Card

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi i have a Playstation 3! i want to record some online games but recording off a TV looks like crap so i guess i need a video capture card huh? well how do they work? i'm a no0b

I saw some USB ones and those will prob b the best for me becasue i dont want any internal and i dont have much $$$ i dont know if it matters but i will be using a SDTV for this.



But if i connect my PS3 AV cables to this i can only see the image on the PC i'm using right since the cables wont be plugged into the tv?

So can any one help me out? i just wanna know how it works,what i need to buy,what plugs into what and etc.... Thanks on Advance, Victor

That should work fine, make sure to use the s-video input, it will look better. You can pause the game on the tv, then plug it into the computer and start the game back up while recording.

I have one for sale if you would like it. It is a lot nicer than the one in that picture. Check out the sale thread in my sig for more details. You just plug everything in and use your monitor for the screen, you can also use RCA cable splitters to have it still appear on the TV, but there will be a little lag between the TV and computer.

Correct, you would need a splitter in order to do both. Keep in mind that you will be recording in 480i or worse, not nearly the 1080p that the PS3 can output. Also, you will want to make sure that you have a good video editor, enough space to record, etc. Good luck mate!

Recording does take a TON of space when uncompressed, good point. That 60GB drive might be a little small to record a lot at once.
