Hi there,

I plan to capture video using my camcorder to the computer for editing. I need a simple setup not too complex.. maybe an external device? I don't really want to change my current graphic card too.. by the way my camcorder is using s-video connector.. any advise??

If all you need is the box with S-video input that lets you stream the video onto the PC then you might want to use a TV card like this or an external thing like PLEXTOR ConvertX PVR

If you want to be able to connect various sources - both digital and analog then you might need something better like Creative Video Blaster

or Canopus converter

So it all depends what you really need and how much you want to spend.
