I want to capture recorded videos off my 8300HD onto a Windows 7 64-bit box. From all the reading I've been doing, it seems no reliable 64-bit Windows Firewire drivers exist.
1) Can you confirm this? Are 64-bit Windows users still unable to capture from 8300HD via Firewire?
2) I prefer not to buy a used Mac for the sole purpose of Firewire video capture. Can I successfully run a capture solution in Ubuntu, inside a VirtualBox environment? If so, what software works with an 8300HD?
There are so many threads across the Net, it would be nice to have a single response point for this specific situation. Thanks.
