How to watch CCTV camera on PC

I want to install 3-4 CCTV cameras, wire them to my PC, be able to view the images on my PC.  I installed an ViewCast Osprey-100 capture card but I do not see a utility to view the images.

I am not sure I have the correct card or need a capture card.    The camera I am working with is a Samsung SSC-B9221.  Can change to other cameras if needed.

Your cameras are fine. The capture card looks a little worrisome. The vista drivers on their website are in beta, so it may not work at all. You are supposed to use this on an XP or Server 2003 machine.

You are supposed to use third party software to view the input. The manual suggests "Windows Media Encoder" or "Real Producer".

You may also be able to simply configure your capture card in Vista's Windows Media Center, and watch it just as though you were watching television on your PC. However, there's a lot of options in the manual that I can't see a place to configure in Media Center, so don't get your hopes too high on that.
