Elgato Video Capture’s easy-to-use software assists you through every step, from connecting an analogue video device to capturing video and choosing how you will watch and share it.

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.

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

Elgato Video Capture is very easy to use. The software assistant guides you through every step, from connecting an analogue 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.

Video to your computer from a DVR, DVD Player, or Set-Top Box

Perhaps you’ve been given a DVD from a family event or reunion and you want to share it by posting it on your website or on YouTube. Or you’ve saved some great movies and TV shows on your DVR and want to play them back on your iPad.

Elgato Video Capture can connect and capture video to your Mac or PC from any device that has composite 'RCA' or S-Video outputs. It also comes with a SCART adapter.

Similar-looking pieces of hardware are available for less, but what you get with this package is hardware and software that work smoothly together. Plug in your VCR (using SVHS or RCA cable), check through a few easy menus, and it records to one of several modern formats (MKV, MP4, etc.). Software for both Mac and PC is included. I've tried both, and they are almost identical. Picture quality is good - the results are much better than I get recording on a standalone VHS-to-DVD recorder.

Some minor quibbles.

1. The software must be installed from disk. Not every computer comes with a CD-ROM these days (my MacBook Air doesn't, although it works very well with the Elgato), and I would have liked a download option.

2. The menus are simple but sometimes maybe a little too limited in their options. For example, a recording can be set to turn off automatically after a certain amount of time - very useful if you want to leave a long tape recording while you go out. But the options for time are limited to exact lengths (1 hour, 2 hours, etc.) and the maximum is three hours. A typical two hour tape is just over 2 hours 2 minutes, or 6 hours 6 minutes on extended play. I would have liked these options on the recording menu, or a custom option where I could set my own length.

Overall, though, I am very pleased with this purchase. It has replaced a couple of older machines, and is a great way of converting shelves of old tapes into a small hard drive of files. It works, and works well.

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.

So so happy I purchased this!!! I have had a ton of VHS home videos sitting in a box for ages. It would have cost a fortune to pay to get them onto DVD and having them download directly to my PC is bonus! This was so easy (and I am not savvy with anything electronic!). It's not fancy, and you have to watch through your video while it records, but this was no big deal for me. Highly recommend!

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.

So far it's been a breeze to use. Just plug and go! I've been converting old VHS tapes using this device and I'm very pleased with the results. I should mention I've only used this with a Windows 7 desktop so far; I haven't tried it with a Mac yet.

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.

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.
