Hi All, I'm new to this forum but have been studying old posts for weeks now. My project, like the boomers before of me, is to transfer old family videos to digital for archiving.
I found LordSmurf's VirtualDub
1.9.11 w/filters package and downloaded it and then added Huffyuv
-mt to it. That worked fine and shows up in the Video Compression list for VirtualDub
. Then I read more and saw that regular Huffyuv
was recommended instead so I tried to add that too. That didn't work. I'm wondering if VirtualDub can't have both huffy versions as available compression tools? And if so how do I delete the -mt option? (Also I'm wondering if I need to keep the .dll and .int files on my computer? Or once installed they can be deleted?)
Before finding this forum I also downloaded the VirtualDub 1.10.4-64 bit package, so I don't know if that's confusing anything. For example when I try to install huffyuv from the rar file, how does it know which VirtualDub folder to put it in? Right now it's not showing up in either, but to recap, the huffyuv-mt install did show up in 1.9.11 from the rar file.
Also, some of the posts I'm reading are over a decade old so I'm concerned that it's not the latest recommendations/information, so I'm checking. Thanks!
As additional info my setup is:
Windows 10 (sorry, it's what I have) laptop, AMD A8-6410 APU quad-core
Hauppauge USB-Live 2
3 VHS decks (an Aiwa, a Samsung and a Panasonic) to play VHS and VHS-C tapes for capture
Sony EV-C25 to play Video 8 tapes for capture
JVC videocam DVL517 to play DV Cassettes it originally recorded for capture
also have 8mm and super 8mm film reels, but I think I have to take those somewhere for conversion.
