How to transfer video to DVD.  Tutorial.

CD and DVD Duplication, Canberra ACT

So you have a batch of all video tapes and you are thinking of digitising it and putting it onto DVD?  Right. Well, you can do it yourself if you have the right gear. First of all you need a working VCR (Video Cassette Recorder). You will also need an RCA video cable and a computer equipped with a video capture card. They can either be built in in a computer or can be usb based. The video tape has actually be played through VCR and captured by the computer first. There is no shortcut, the transfer has to be done in real time. So, if your videotape plays for 3 hours, you need 3 hours to capture it, while playing. Pretty much the same way as old VHS to VHS duplication worked. One VCR is playing and one recording. Only in this case the recording machine is a computer. As a result the computer provides a digital file of some kind. It can be avi file or an mp4. It needs to be converted to a DVD format. To do so you need a piece of software. Many computer come equipped with pre-installed DVD burning sofware that can, in some instances do the conversion for you. Try importing the video file into DVD burning sofware and if it acepts that – bingo. Put the DVD disc into your burner and press “burn” button. You’ve got the DVD made!
