    I was wondering if anyone was aware of an app that allows you to utilize the iPad USB adapter to capture video. I have video tapes I'd like to convert to digital files. :confused:

    First off it would require a capture device which in some cases connects via USB. However I can't find any that work with iPads, if you have a Mac or pc around you've got many choices. They all require the use of their own software (for Mac/pc) or else work with programs like iMovie (not iPad/iPhone version) or final cut.

    If you want a recommendation, I have been very happy with my "blackmagic Video recorder" http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/videorecorder/

    Remember to capture VHS you will obviously need a working VHS play too.

    Edit: the video recorder I recommended is Mac only I believe, but it captures video in a compressed format that is already compatible with iTunes/iPads.
