Here's another one:

www.vcdhelp.com

I've played with video capture quite a bit, so ask any questions you'd like.
Currently, I'm using a Sony Handycam (8mm) into a Matrox G200 capture card and using some of the utilities that are listed on the vcdhelp web site.

good luck.

I've also been happy with the DC-30 card and Adobe Premiere, but there are many options for you to explore.  The question I have is what do you now have in terms of your hardware and software environment?  What are you using to do your coding?

Hi experts.
Thanks for the help.
My problem is that this area is quit new for me. I am using the bt787 Capture Card (8 inputs). I have no clue of how to start even.
I know that I have to connect to the relevant drivers ,but I can not find the API for it.
Many thanks

I can't find much on your device, sorry to say.  Did you not get a manual for it with details?  I do see that Windows 98 does support that device, though.
