Saving video to your computer

I am having no problems recording video to the DVD in the camera. I have out of town family and would love to be able to email my video clips to them. How do I do this? How do I get the video from the camera to the computer? I have been able to watch the video on my computer, but not save it to email it.

    Do I hook the camera to the computer with the USB cord or take the DVD and put it in my computer and use it from there. I tried using the DVD and I couldn't get the video clips to save to the hard drive.

    I have everything hooked up (camera with USB to computer) and Movie Maker isn't showing my camera as one of the sources to capture video. Why?

  • Laura Beynon Jul 15, 2007

    I tried that. When I go under my computer and click on Drive D (where the DVD is) I can play the video. But when I use Movie Maker, click on import video, find the d drive, the files aren't there. It only gives me two files dvdcam and video_ts.

You would normally get a cd with the camera with the driver and any software for transfering and capturing video on, but if you have'nt you can use Windows Movie Maker. Assuming you are on XP, this can be found on strat>all programmes>accesories>windows movie maker. From within this easy to use programme you can import video straight from you camera, you then choose which frames to use by dragging down to the bottom timeline, and then the programme will ask what you wish to do with the movie, be it for e-mailing or web and will compress the file automatically and when you have clicked finish video ask if you wish to email it directly from the programme or save to your pc.

    it would probably be easier using the cam connected to pc via usb or firewire, whichever you have, as it should transfer direct using the capture from video device command

    if that isnt working, use and insert the dvd from the camera into your dvd drive and either copy the video to your hardrive or try and import straight from the dvd, and then click on the the second command line 'import video'

    the video_ts is the actual film, so if movie maker cannot recognise the folder, then you will need a programme similair to Nero to convert to a .avi format or MP4 which can be played in most movie browsers.

    You can download a trial version from here

Unfortunately, only video and/or pictures from your (SD Memory) Card can be transferred (via the USB cable) to your computer. Video/pictures from a disk is not accessible to your computer.
So, you may wish to try to playback the video (on the camcorder) with the output to a DVD recorder (using the AV cables from the camcorder to the DVD recorder or a VCR recorder). This assumes you have a DVD recorder (or VCR recorder) that will take the RGB input from the camcorder. Connect it up just like you're viewing the playback on a TV monitor.

I have an old Samsung VP-A30 video camera with loads of 8mm tapes, and would like to transfer to either TV/Video/PC. Unfortunately, there seems to be just one AV output source, which feels rather fragile,...

Hello Ron,
Well that is like you say an old camera, mind you 8mm is still far the best and safest way to store your valued films as it has kept the data on those tapes longer than any DVD ever did, remember unlike we thought 10 years ago a DVD only has around 8 to 10 years life span, we are finding CD & DVD productions that are over 8 years old just wont play any longer.
Kodak put a report on the net 7 years ago that they found even some quite costly DVD recorded media had gone blank and refused to play after a very short time in storage.
I think you ought to look around Ebay, find a nice HI8 digital camera, put your loved tapes in that, plug the new Firewire cable into the camera, and your PC and download your treasured items to another media like DVD.
Keep your 8mm tapes in a draw safe though because they will out-live all DVD recordings I can honestly say that.

How to transfer Panasonic DMR-E80H recorded DVDs to computer

I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product

Buy a DVD Recorder ( cheap one ) . Record directly from your Camcorder on Replay mode. That is my way.It is good.

Please tell all of your friends,family , co-workers never buy any products from JVC again. NEVER all your life.
