Re: importing video from dv camcorder

If your camcorder is using miniDV format(cassette) the best way is to connect it through the firewire IEEE 1394 cable and capture video on notebook. If your camcorder is ''trully'' digital and uses hard disk to store recordings then you really have no problems, just think of camcorder as a large memory-stick and connect it in that way to your notebook. Hope this helps.

How to Put/Convert JVC, Panasonic, Canon Camcorder Video to Mac, MOD to MP4,...

Canon, JVC, Panasonic, most of these types of camcorders recorded videos are MOD files(some are TOD used by JVC), such as Canon FS100, FS10, FS21, JVC GZ-MC100 (SD), GZ-MG630, GZ-MG680, Panasonic SDR-SW21, SDR-SW20, SDR-S26. If we want to enjoy videos shot with these JVC, Panasonic, Canon camcorders on Mac, PCs, iPad, iPhones, or other popular portable players, we shall meet the problem that MOD files recorded in JVC, Canon, Panasonic cannot be directly recognized in Quicktime on Mac, in iMovie, and other Apple products.

MOD files, encoded by using MPEG-2 video codec with AC3 audio codec, need converting to MP4,MOV, AVI,DV, H.264 on Mac. With a MOD Video Converter for Mac , you can freely convert JVC, Canon, Panasonic MOD files to Mac MP4, MOV, DV, etc. What’ s more, Mac MOD Video Converter can edit MOD files in iMovie, FCP , FCE , etc.

The following tutorial for you to convert JVC, Panasonic, Canon MOD videos to Mac step by step.

Step1: Upload MOD files
Click "Add File" to load MOD files that you selected after you lauched Mac MOD Video Converter.

Step2: Set Output Video Format on Mac
On the "Profile", you can click to select your final video format like MPEG-4, DV, MOV, H.264, etc for Mac.

Step3: Transfer MOD Files for Mac
Click "Start" to convert MOD videos, after waiting for a few minutes, you can watch converted MOD files on Mac.

Tips: Besides converting function, you can edit MOD files on Mac OS with MOD Converter for Mac, for example, crop video, edit video effect, merge several video files, trim video, etc. More details you can refer to edit MOD files on Mac.

We have VCR tapes with videos on it we would like to convert them to DVD or CD- how should we do it

I hope that you have plenty of time on your hands. If you do, then you will need a video capture card or tv-tuner USB dongle. Most large computer stores carry a variety of choices. Hook the line-out of the VCR to the TV-tuner or video capture card and use the digital video recording software that came with it to record your video to your hard disk. From here you can edit it with a video editing program and burn the finished product to your DVD or you can burn the raw files to the DVD.

I can't load new pics onto Windows Vista Photo Gallery anymore...

I finally figured it out. Somehow I had messed with the Autoplay settings uploading pics the last time I guess. Anyways, if you experience this problem, check this out first and see if it fixes it for you before you do anything else:

gl_arrow_down_static.gif What if the import dialog box doesn't appear? If the dialog box prompting you to import your pictures doesn't appear when you connect the camera to your computer, AutoPlay might be turned off. You can import your pictures using Windows Photo Gallery instead. Here's how:
1. Open Windows Photo Gallery by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Photo Gallery.
2. On the toolbar, click File, and then click Import from Camera or Scanner.
3. In the Import Pictures and Videos dialog box, choose your camera from the list of devices, and then click Import.
gl_alert_vert.png gl_icon_tip.png If you prefer, you can turn on AutoPlay or set AutoPlay to automatically import pictures from a digital camera. For more information, see Change AutoPlay Settings. gl_alert_vert.png gl_alert_bg_tip.png

No input for i-LINK cable for Sony Camcorder

if your computer does not have an i-Link port (also known as firewire) you would need to purchase a PCMCIA card in order to transfer video to your computer such as this one:

are the connectors on the camera the same exact size, or is one bigger than the other? If they are NOT the same size go with the kind of card I mentioned above (it's a 6-pin firewire cable). If the connectors are the same size you need to get either a 6-4 pin firewire cable, or get a card that has a 4-pin connector

Import video is only when you have recorded a video using the webcam in a particular format and not on the fly which is what you are trying to do.

Record what you want using another application and the webcam then import the video into movie maker to edit.

Alternatively, I think you need to to go the options screen and select the default audio device. Go to control pannels and see if its there and then select the webcam as the default device for MS applications.

good luck
