Recently purchased a Video Capture card for youtube,but now would like to use this to capture vhs-c(from camcorder) , using hdmi IN ...

the capture card is HDMI ONLY in/out hdmi

Problem is,the camcorder only has s video and rca outs...

Ive got great desktops with tons of ports,and i have a great led Samsung,but i don't think that has video out.... (UN55d6420/6400)

I dont have a vhs to dvd recorder.

And i need to get this vhs-c to a file or dvd, in the cheapest form possible...

My equipment.

Old vhs-c camcorder with Svid and Rca out
High end desktop w/ live gamer hd
High end LED

Please specify the brand/model capture card you have. The only one I know of that has HDMI input is the Hauppauge Colossus and that has analog inputs also.

Aside -- why would you buy a capture card to pull video from Youtube. There is any number of Firefox add-ins that let you download Youtube videos directly in the highest resolution available. You can see what the fox says in HD.

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine

I have used a standard VHS deck with the VHS-C tape holder/converter to playback the tapes and record on a Funai VHS to DVD recorder. If individual units are used, use the S-video connection for the best quality. Once unto a DVD it can easily be edited and reburned on most PCs.
