We now understand what analog/digital video resources are and what internal and external video capture devices are. So which capture card should we buy, how much money must we pay for it, and how can we use it?
Although VirtualDub can receive video information from almost any capturing equipment, we will concentrate on internal capturing cards since we are going to study VirtualDub processing features together (including various codecs).
If you are new to the world of video capturing, start with a suitably priced internal device with acceptable functionality. I recommend a Pinnacle PCTV capture card. It has a low price, has been on the market for considerable time, and is not buggy.
I am not the marketing manager of any video capture ...
