    It never gets past its little splash screen. The windows error report says:

    AppName: virtualvcr.exe AppVer: 2.6.9.6252 ModName: virtualvcr.exe
    ModVer: 2.6.9.6252 Offset: 00006b8d

    I tried reinstalling it and same problem. Running XP, two disk drives, 4GB ram, AMD Athlon core-duo.



    Thanks,

    Chris

    1) Has it EVER worked correctly for you on this computer?
    2) What's your video capture card or device? Be warned that Hauppauge, for example, makes some great products but 3rd party applications like this rarely if ever work with their stuff.

    No it has never worked. The capture is a Pinnacle MovieBox 710=USB.

    The splash screen gets as far as saying "Setting Cross Bar", and then I get the Windows crash message and it asks to send info or not.

    Then stop using it and stop trying to use it. It's 9 years old.

    >>Then stop using it and stop trying to use it. It's 9 years old.

    And you would recommend I use what? I'm not trying to solve a new problem here. The task is to capture Hi8 analog tape, a problem whose solution should be at least 9 years old. Lots of references to VirtualVCR and Virtualdub on this forum, which apparently I have misread. Love to hear as concise an answer as to what I should use.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Just to capture Hi8 video via a Pinnacle MovieBox 710-USB. The computer is not state of the art, but should be better than what folks used 9 years ago. Pinnacle Studio 15 (the SW bundled with the MovieBox) looses sync and drops frames capturing to AVI. MPEG2 works OK, but I thought since I was archiving I would try to capture to the highest fidelity format I could. So I came here and to Doom9 to try and figure out whether it is the computer or the software by trying an alternative.

    What codec are you using for AVI capture?

    P Studio gives me three choices of capture for S-video: DV, M-JPEG, MPEG2. So I have no clue what the actual codec is. When I get a chance to try Vdub with Huffyuv (thankyou for the help on that) I'll let you know how it goes.
