VHS to Digital

Hello,

I once bought a Kworld USB tuner stick to capture some videos I had on tape. At the time I was using Windows.

Now I would like to use the same device but with my MacBookPro instead. I've been trying to use VideoGlide but couldn't make it work yet.

Does anyone know if it's possible or I'll have to buy a new device compatible? Is there a better software to work with?

Back in the day when I was transferring all my VHS tapes, I used this:

Sony DVMC DA2

Worked flawlessly with Final Cut Pro. The output is mini Firewire to Firewire 400. But I'm sure you can use other alternatives. At the time, this box was $300. There may be other USB versions out there.

One of the best ways to convert old tapes is if you happen to have an old DV camera. These will have a Firewire cable that goes to the computer and many times also a "Video In RCA jack" The camera can run in passthrough mode. The DV format is good because each frame standalone andhas way more than enough resolution to hold VHS tapes.
