Firewire Capture Tags: Connection Firewire Devices Components Last response: January 11, 2006 11:10 AM in Components Share robburne January 4, 2006 11:24:54 PM Hi, I have a firewire camcorder and I want to use it as a capture device for Webcamming etc. What particular device do I need, my regular firewire connection does not act as a video capture device alone, so what else do I need? Would it be some kind of TV Capture card with Firewie connection? I would be grateful to know the exact spec that I need to seach for when buying. Many thanks, Rob.

That's it, you don't need more hardware, just software. robburne January 11, 2006 9:02:21 AM Ok I haveit working now, it was because my camcorder wasnot set to camera mode (it was set to play mode) and I guess this meant data was being sent to the camera rather thanthe other way.

My problem is, I understand FireWire but haven't a clue about your camera. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
