    Hi, I'm new here and just need your help. How can I convert VHS video for web playing? what format should i transfer it to (mpeg, avi etc) I have a regular VCR, a Dell laptop (Inspiron 8200 Nvidia GeForce4 440Go, Cdr, 30GB hardrive) which has Windows Movie Maker. What software and tools do I need? and where can I get those. Please help me, I have no clue on how to do this. Thank you so much in advance!

    for_sure,
    i was writeing a post to you,lost me electric..
    trying again,start with a pinnacle system,it use's usb as its input for video,you will have two to pick from,pctv deluxe and pctv pro,from
    $100 to $200 dollars,whats nice about their system its external and very easy to use.
    also you can input your vcr or camcorder and also capture tv,and watch tv..
    for a first time user,this is the way to go,until you learn more about computers...
    good luck
