    convert analog (cctv) video camera to webcam?
    Hello all...

    I recently acquired a analog cctv security camera that I essentially want to convert into a webcam. Essentially to take rca/composite video and turn it into firewire or usb digital video. I've been looking everywhere for hardware (that won't kill my wallet) to do this.

    There are some options for mac that convert analog video to digital video (for purposes of digitizing old vhs and recording TV), but none seem to support streaming video. I need to have a live feed to mess with, and not have to record it first or have to go through a program. I want to interface with max msp/jitter, but if someone has made this work for iChat or anything, it would work for me too.

    The pinacle "video capture for mac" hardware/software bundle does not work, and I'm waiting to hear from Elgato for their product eyetv hybrid...but i doubt that one too.

    If anyone has any suggestions or solutions, I would be extremely happy.

    thanks in advance...

    Hi bbigelow did you ever figure out how to get your camera into your computer. I'm looking for the same kinda thing.
