Need an easy way to transfer home video from VHS, Video8, or Hi8 tapes to your Mac or PC? Or to transfer saved movies and TV shows from your DVR to your iTunes or Windows Media Player library?

Elgato Video Capture Device
There is no easier or more convenient way to transfer home video to your computer
Turn Analog Into Digital

There is no easier or more convenient way to transfer home video to your computer. Elgato Video Capture records from analog video sources in the H.264 or MPEG-4 formats that are native to iTunes. Your video is captured in real-time and no lengthy re-encoding is necessary; the video is immediately ready to sync with an iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV, to play in QuickTime, to edit in iMovie, or to upload directly to YouTube.

Put Family Memories on Your Computer

The era of VHS tapes is winding down, and after three decades there is a lot of video content to transfer for modern playback devices. What's more, any video stored on magnetic tape (such as VHS, Video8 and Hi8) has a limited life span and deteriorates over time. The Elgato Video Capture provides an easy way to bring those precious memories into iTunes or your Windows Media Player library.

Every Step Is Made Simple

The Elgato Video Capture is very easy to use. The software assistant guides you through every step, from connecting an analog video device to capturing video and choosing how you will watch and share it. The software offers a simple tool to trim the beginning and end of the captured video. With just one click, you can add your video to iTunes or to your Windows Media Player library; you can play back the video on your computer or sync it with your iPad or iPhone; you can upload your video directly to YouTube; and you can edit it right away in iMovie or Windows Live Movie Maker.

World-Ready for Any Device and Region

The Elgato Video Capture features composite and S-Video inputs and comes with a composite video/RCA stereo cable and SCART adapter. It handles standard definition NTSC, SECAM, PAL and PAL/60 video for all regions.

I didn't have experience with video capture devices prior to purchasing this product. However, after a friend reported positive experiences with other Elgato products, I decided to buy it. It's very easy to use; was converting my first old home VHS tape within 10 minutes of unboxing. However, I'd like to caution other prospective buyers that the accompanying software is very limited. It's basically a wizard that guides you through the process, but the only editing operations supported are trimming the beginning and end of the outputted MP4 file. In summary, this product exceeds my expectations for ease of use for converting VHS tapes to MP4 files.

Used this device to put a mess of home videos to digital and glad I did. VHS tapes were starting to deteriorate to the point where one of the tapes barely made the transition. In general I'm happy with the device and it was very easy to use. If you are looking for large editing capabilities this may not be for you. But a simple transition from VHS to digital and this works quite well. I would buy it again.

I strongly recommend this product. It took a minute to install software, plugged both ends to VHS and USB and was ready to start. No need to be a computer wizard to be able to digitize anymore.

The research I did ahead of time for this item pointed to the Elgato being the better choice and it was correct. This item was easy to install and just as easy to use. I've digitized many of my old VHS tapes and the quality of the final product is very good.

All I wanted to do was transfer about 60 VHS tapes to my MAC computer.
The set up was very easy.
So far I have transferred 25 tapes without a problem.

I'm very impressed with the video quality. I was supposed to be able to choose the output format but if there is a way to do it, I can't find it. I believe it is going to H.264 but it ain't sayin'.
I pulled 8mm camcorder video off my old Sony Handycam that is 10 years old. Very little artifacting even with kids running around in the video. Excellent video/audio sync. After capturing a 2 hour tape, there is about a 30 second processing phase, otherwise seems to use very few resources on my 2 year old intel iMac.

The setup is easy. Standard composite into the camcorder, USB into the computer. The software... is ok, not great. Simple, but almost too simple with little chance to change anything. If all you want to do is grab your old video before it turns to dust, I highly recommend.
