you need a composite video out of your PC and a vcr that will take the inputs (typically they have av inputs at the back).

you didn't provide your laptop model, so I can't look up what ports you got. typically laptops have a nice array of video outputs, if you have a S-video out, I'm pretty sure you can buy a cable that will plug into S-video on your laptop and plug into av jacks on the vcr.

after that you'll just have to play the movie in full screen while recording it
