Default Please Help

I have a lot of clips on videotapes, and I want to post it online. i want to plug my VCR into my modem....I have a hole at the back that says "SPA" am I suppose to plug a VCR cord in it?

Or am I suppose to use a certain program?

Confused please help
Thank you

uhm... I might be way off, BUT..

If you want to convert your VHS video tapes to digital, you need:

a video card that has a video input,
software that can convert,
and a good PC, because working with audio/video is CPU intensive.

I think you got your modem and video card confused. Just because the connection is the same, they do not do the same thing

I've take video clips of VCR tape, via an All In Wonder card. works pretty good.

its not when it is all set up. Joy2004 the kind of video card is called VIVO. otherwise you can use a TV card to capture video. the quality is not very good with a TV card, with the exceptions of Radeon all-in-wonders
