    Elgato Video Capture - Capture Analog Video for your Mac or PC, iPad and iPhone

    Digitise video from a VCR, camcorder and other analogue video sources for playback on your Mac, PC and iPad.

    Transfer video to your Mac or PC from a VCR, DVR, camcorder, or any other analogue video device as a high quality H.264 file. Elgato Video Capture’s easy-to-use software assists you through every step, from connecting an analogue video device to capturing video and choosing how you will watch and share it.

    There is no easier way to digitise home video to playback on your computer, to sync with an iPad or iPhone, to edit in iMovie or Windows Live Movie Maker, or to upload to YouTube.

    Put Family Memories on your Computer

    The era of VHS tapes is winding down, and after three decades there is a lot of video content to transfer for modern playback devices. What’s more, any video stored on magnetic tape (such as VHS, Video8 and Hi8) has a limited life span and deteriorates over time.

    Elgato Video Capture provides an easy way to bring those precious memories into iTunes or your Windows Media Player library.

    Every Step is made Simple

    Elgato Video Capture is very easy to use. The software assistant guides you through every step, from connecting an analogue video device to capturing video and choosing how you will watch and share it. The software offers a simple tool to trim the beginning and end of the captured video.

    With just one click, you can add your video to iTunes or to your Windows Media Player library; you can play back the video on your computer or sync it with your iPad or iPhone; you can upload your video directly to YouTube; and you can edit it right away in iMovie or Windows Live Movie Maker.

    Video to your Computer from a DVR, DVD Player, or Set-Top Box

    Perhaps you’ve been given a DVD from a family event or reunion and you want to share it by posting it on your website or on YouTube. Or you’ve saved some great movies and TV shows on your DVR and want to play them back on your iPad.

    Elgato Video Capture can connect and capture video to your Mac or PC from any device that has composite 'RCA' or S-Video outputs. It also comes with a SCART adapter.

    What's Included
    • Elgato Video Capture
    • Composite-to-SCART adapter
    • Composite video/RCA stereo cable
    System Requirements

    Mac: OS X 10.6.8 or later

    I have been looking for a way to transfer both some old VHS tapes and some off-air recorded programmes from my digi-box - I also needed one specifically compatible with my Mac. I had been recommended the cheaper iCapture, but I was unimpressed with some of the reviews - it also seemed rather cheap...

    I'm glad I chose to pay a little more for the Elgato. Using it is dead easy: literally plug in (component or scart to USB2), follow a few basic onscreen checks, and then hit record - the software des all the rest. After it's done it then either saves the file as an MP4 (ready to view in Quicktime or import to iTunes), or ports you into iMovie for editing and ripping to DVD. The quality is good (although it does depend on the quality of the original itself) - and it even works with my digi-box, so I can save a few of those BBC4 folk concerts that have been eating up my HD space ;)

    An excellent product.

    Easy set up, easy to use. Quality seems good enough. Some of my tapes are quite old so can't always be sure whether it is the tape or the transfer. I have Final Cut Pro and was able to enhance them a bit with that. Did have problem with the sound recording on some clips. It was either out of sync or garbled and had to go back and record again. Can't tell if it is just a problem when you record longer clips or if it is my tapes (though the sound on the tapes when watching on TV is fine). A good product but only gave it three stars as I think the price is a bit high.

    The Elgato converts VHS tapes into digital format to your computer. I have an iMac and on this device it is straightforward to write the digitised film to DVD as the "burner and software" is part of the computer. The Elgato connection to a VHS player is simple [SCART adapter supplied] as is the connection to a USB 2.0 port on the computer. The conversion process is easy and instructions appear in steps on the computer screen. No handbook is needed and all necessary instructions for setting up are clearly printed on the storage case.
    Altogether a very compact, handy and reliable device. You may get alternatives cheaper but this product is worth the extra. My rating is based on the use of the Elgato with a SONY VHS player [10 year old] and a 6 year old iMac. The literature states it is compatible with a PC but I cannot comment on that.

    6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By the lawn mower man on 27 Jun. 2013
    When I first opened the packaging for this device it was ridiculously easy to set up, however I was devastated to find that it couldn't record any footage directly from an input source. With the exception of a camcorder it seemed useless, that is until I plugged it into a dvd player. I then realised that, with a dvd player attached as the output it could pretty much record anything.

    When I say anything I genuinely mean anything. Now at this point I am not condoning the rerecording of piracy protected film because that would be illegal, however if your intention is to utilise it for reviews or the creation of memes then this is the device for you, especially if you are a MAC user. If you have a PC however there are better options but for this price you'd be lucky to find something with so much functionality.

    Now this device is not without its faults as other reviewers have addressed, but I would like to suggest that the concern with resolution is very superficial. This is an age old argument about how the higher the resolution the better. Now the aspect ratio the Elgato films in is not HD. High Definition is all fine and well, and brilliant for large TV's and projectors just as 4K is even better, but high definition doesn't make for a better film or recording. Most DVD's (excluding Blue Ray) are in standard definition, and most youtube and vimo content are SF as well. In reality HD consumes a lot of space and requires specific codecs, which when filmed alongside a standard format camcorder will pixilate and look shabby. I personally, with the intention of reviewing video games and film, would rather upload into standard format because it is seen as the normal. Why film in HD or care about a lack of it when your output does not require it.

    I bought this device to convert that bag of old camcorder cassettes into videos that I can store on my Windows based computer and then transfer to DVDs. It really does work straight out of the box, without having to read any manuals. Stick the DVD in your PC and load the installation file and the drivers, and that's it. Loads in about 3-5 mins. Then connect your camcorder, video or even your sat/cable box and you are able to record. The only word of caution I have is that you will need a fast pc with at least 4gb RAM, as the CPU on my 3 year old laptop was struggling when copying to the hard disk, but on my new desktop it worked perfectly.

    Works perfectly and I have now archived a ton of VHS that we really did not want to lose. Mostly home movies of the kids etc.

    Once that was done I thought it was going on eBay, but then realised I could copy content from the Sky box! Amazing! All those kids movies clogging up the hard drive are now on the Mac Mini (which we use as a HTPC) and its now permanently connected for this purpose!

    Don't mess about with the cheaper alternatives. The encode quality this gives is amazing.
