I have spoke to Lord Smurf over PM and have purchased a USB pinnacle capture card from him along with a VHS player (JVC HR-S8700) from VCRShop and a ES-10 from Ebay
. I have set up a spare PC with Windows XP with VirtualDub
and the Huffyuv
I am in the UK, I have set the resolution to 720x576 and using the standard Huffyuv
codec, I was originally using the multi-threaded version, but LS advised me to use the regular version.
I have also installed both versions of the codec on the PC I plan to play and edit the captures from.
The first captures wouldn’t play in VLC but would play in Windows Media Player okay, since changing to the standard Hufffyuv codec the captures will play in VLC but audio only in Windows Media Player.
I was hoping to use Adobe Premiere Pro to edit with as already have it installed and familiar with it, however dragging any of the captures in gives me an error. I presume because it isn’t seeing the codec. LS suggested I may need to install ffdshow, I have installed that but getting the same error. Do I need to configure this somehow? Premiere Pro is version 22.0.0, Build 169.
I have done a few test captures and would appreciate some feedback on them, before I go ahead capturing full tapes. The files were too large to upload, so have put them on Google drive.
