Ok I here is my situation: I have a lot of old vhs tapes that need to be saved I just bought 2 Hitachi 160GB SATA drives and made a RAID 0 setup so you probably think that the writing to disk should be fast enough. I captured like 28min of video in full pal resolution using the lossless Huffyuv codec but I still seem to have dropped 48 frames. How is this possible CPU usage never came above 25%. BTW how to check the framerate of my vhs tapes? Ok it seems that vdub ads and removes frames to keep the video and audio clock synchronized. That still leaves my 2nd question last question. And here is an aditional one. When I view the source video and put it full screen there are no bleck bars but when I capture at 720x576 there are blackbars on the both sides of the screen when the captured video is played full screen. Do I need to capture at a different resolution?
