Hi, I already know that my computer is pretty much incapable of playing back footage recorded by the Hauppauge HD PVR, but I was wondering if my computer has enough to simply allow the *recording* of content.
It's a Dell Dimension 4700 with 512 MB RAM and a Pentium 4 2.80GHz processor.
So far I just plan on uploading 480p content onto sites like YouTube, completely unedited (maybe a simple cut of huge chunks of content, but that's it; no adding effects or need to preview the footage). All I'd be doing is recording content, using Sony Vegas Pro 9 "blind" (video-wise) to convert into a high quality .mp4, then upload to a video sharing site.
Do you think this would work? Would 480p content be less taxing on the computer than 720p content?
