neanderthal video player

Can't seem to get my stone age video player to connect/work on my macbook pro.
I'm wanting to (usual stuff), get all my movies from a VHS, (get my mac to at least play the videos so I can see them on the computer, then pop them onto a DVD (and clean my cupboards of dust)...
Using a - red to red
yellow to yellow
white to white, from the back of the video player
and I've plugged in what looks like normal jack into my speaker bit.
Should I buy a USB (that goes at the end of the cable) instead.
That done... how do I get to 'see' my videos and burn them onto DVD.

And you are connecting it to your Mac how?
You are using what's known as a composite cable. The yellow is the video, the red and white are the right and left channels of the audio.
To capture video on your Mac, you will need a video capture card. The most often recommended is from El Gato - link (though there are others out there).I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
