    Question neanderthal video player
    Hi,
    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.

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    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.
