Record video from component output to USB ?


I have a camera that has only one output : Component (Three cables, each with RCA plugs at both ends, YPbPr (image attached)

I want to record video from this camera to desktop computer through USB, do you recommend any device ?

I've never used any but do see some component video to USB devices for around $10 on Amazon.  That's inexpensive enough that I'd be tempted to give one a try and see what the quality is like.

Are you recording live or is this recorded?

A device like this will do everything you want ...
= Component + Audio to USB
= Analogue Video  + Audio leads (L+R) to USB

Take note that the 3 component cables are  video only.
You need a separate audio connection.
Nattygreg's link points to a Sabrent USB 2.0 Video/Audio Capture DVD Maker Adapter - USB 2.0, MPEG Encoder, Plug-n-Play which appears to have both component and S-Video inputs.
Eirman's link is even more flexible with component, composite, S-Video, and audio.
What type of camera goldenstar model make etc.
If you have a DVR on your TV you could also connect composite rca cables to that and record it.
And if your DVR has built in DVD burner burn it to DVD
With the PC
There is also Perfectly Simple USB DVR
More USB DVR here
In order to use these you will need to play the video on your camera while capturing  from the PVR built into the USB DVR( PVR-personal Video Recorder)
There is a simpler method if!! it has a sim card you could copy the video out as is.
Does your camera have a small vhs tape or a mini disc? Or an inbuilt storage sim card?
If it has an internal sim card you can take that out and plug it into universal sd card reader.
