I have been looking around the internet trying to find out how I can take VCR tapes and put them onto my computer. Like I guess plug up my VCR to my computer but I don't know how. I have a G4 Macintosh with Tiger 10.4.9 on it. I have recorded myself playing Super Smash Bros. Melee (a video game) and need to put it on a website. If you have any other ways of getting that on to the computer I would be really appreciate any tips or suggestions.

Thanks,

Paul

The best way is to have video input to your video card, not sure if Macs have this or not. Next you can get Video to USB device, like this

Thank you very much. So, all I need to buy is the thing on the link. I am just making sure so I don't do the wrong thing. I don't even need a video capture card on my computer?

Thanks

But after looking at it, how do I plug up my VCR to it? My VCR doesn't have any Ethernet hook-ups on the back. Is there a such thing as a USB to RCA Jacks converter? Like something you plug up to your USB drive then you can plug up any RCA thing to your computer?
