    Specs:
    PPC Mini, 10.4.11. Intel Mini, 10.6.8. MacBook Pro, 10.10.5. iPhone 3GS.
    However, if you haven't got one, you will need a device to connect your VCR to your Mac and transfer the video.

    Have a look at Elgato's Video Capture. It also comes with its own software that will give you Quicktime files of your tapes.

    I hurriedly replied earlier from work, my reply wasn't accurate. I checked again and the Mac version is $70US...the software comes with a USB cable to connect your VCR's RCA jacks.

    The elgato software looks really good, too.

    Specs:
    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OSX10.11, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OSX10.11 , iPad Air, iPhone 3GS
    Both of those should work great. I bet Roxio's software is nicer but have never personally tried that package, but I love Roxio Toast and other Roxio software.

    I have a USB to RCA cable and also have Toast. What setting in Toast would I need to use to transfer the video? Thanks!

    I think you took my post the wrong way. Was just saying I loved Toast from Roxio. It's not Video Capture software, not that I know. Was just trying to say Roxio makes great products. Sorry!
