    I put a surveillance camera up and wanted to record the feed on my pc. I don't really want to get a 24hr lapse vcr or a stand alone dvr (pricey). Does anybody have any suggestions on what capture device and program would be good for this job. I will get a bigger harddrive because I want to capture at least 3 days worth probably breaken down into 8hr blocks. I tried capturing with my dazzle to windows movie maker because I had it handy, but after capturing it needs also an enormous amount of time to encode.
    Hope somebody can help me here.

    hi man,

    i know one way is that you need a software to view and capture on your HD.

    look here: http://www.kgbcameras.co.uk/cameras/dvr.htm
    its a full package with capture card and software.

    i don't think you can just d/l free software like that!

    good luck.

    I use Safeworld PC Surveillance, I bought the program and camera on Ebay really inexpensive and really efficient. It is motion activated and you set the sensitivity. Only drawback is that the camera is only for use during the day.
