    Security Camera Connection
    Hi

    I am planning on connecting this security camera to my Powerbook G4.

    Weatherproof Color Security Camera with Night Vision

    I know it is cheap but I only need it to upload video to the Weather Underground to suppliment the weather data I send to them.

    It connects with a single RCA connector. My question is, Do I need a video capture USB connector or can I use a simple RCA to USB connection? In addition, Does my Mac require a Mac specific capture device or will a windows device work.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    I did do a search but could not find a solution, Thanks in advance.

    Specs:
    13in macbook - 10.11 --- 21in. iMac 10.11 --- HP win 8
    That looks like an ethernet connection in the pic, not an RCA. Only thing I know of which might work for that is SecuritySpy ..:: SecuritySpy ::...
    Maybe someone else knows of something else?

    The camera has a phone cable from the unit to a splitter, the rca connection is at this point.

    In that case you need some kind of video capture device. Maybe something like this: Mac Connection - Detail

    The first one is for PC but "might" work with something like this: EchoFX - Video Capture For Mac OS X
    The second one, I have no idea.
    I use a Pinnacle Dazzle made for PC at about $40 from Best Buy and use Videoglide. Was using it on my HP but now the PC is hooked up to my tv.
