Capturing Video to Disk with lossless frames
Posted on 2002-06-20
ok. I've tried several different capturing programs off the net and get the same results with them all. When I try to capture a 2 hour video from my camcorder, I get frames being dropped. So, by the end of the recording, my audio out of sync with the video by a varing amount (a second to several seconds). I want to just start the tape, walk away and come back to a recorded set of files.
My PC is a 900 mhz, 40 gb drive with 20gb remaining, nothing else running, matrox g200 capture card, clean HD, defragged. I can record about 15 minutes with only a few dropped frames, but it keeps building up.
I am trying to eventually get the video onto a CD in VCD format. (no problem there)
Is there such a thing as a capture program (hopefully free) that will compensate for dropped frames so the audio doesn't get out of sync by the end of 2 hours?
