Hello. Is there any way I could record Xbox gameplay straight to my computer? Or, if that is not possible, what do I need to copy vcr to dvd at home? I am trying to post something on the internet, but the only way I can get it there is by recording the TV with a digital camera with video capabilites. I also don't know if this is the right place to post this. Some one help me! I am confused!

Isn't there a way though to hook up the video feed from the X-box to your computer? Such as with a TV Tuner? I don't think he wants to rip X-box disks, but just record the video feed. Am I correct Melon?

Regardless of the source of video signal, you just need some kind of video capture device with external inputs (SVGA on both sides is preferable to composite video), e.g. the ATI All-In-Wonder series (I use a PCIe version), to capture (i.e. "record") to a video file the output of the Xbox game play video, save it, and then use some DVD burning software, e.g. NERO, Roxio, or whatever to burn the file to DVD or CD-V disc, depending on length.

Optionally you can record videos to VCR and then playback the tape with the VCR A/V outputs into the PC capture device inputs, save the file to PC and burn it to DVD. But that degrades the overall quality going from digital to analog and back to digital (D/A/D conversions).

Of course this all assumes you have a fast enough (P4 class) PC to accomplish real-time video capture, without a lot of drop-out or lockups.

Good luck! :thumbsup:

I am talking about a capture card. I would like it best if I could get a external one, so I don't have to screw around with my computer. I would also like to record from the image on the TV, (not directly from the xbox so the image and gameplay is still the same) Could you give me some good suggestions. My price range is under $100
