    Using Monitor like a TV
    Hi, I have a firewire to RCA cable thing, and I was curious how I could use that to have a window previewing what's going throught the RCA's.

    I just want to use it to play my gamecube through my mac.

    It works in iMovie, but that's a really heavy program. I looked for an option like that in VLC but I couldn't find it. I even tried the preview in iChat, but for some reason it would pick up my "camera", but not show any picture.

    Are there any programs that help preview or display what's playing on your camera?

    Thanks

    You never mentioned what Mac you have.
    Anyway, there are ways to achieve this, just do a search on the forum for "EyeTV" and you will find a plethora of helpful threads.

    Ok, I have a iMac G4, 1.25Ghz with 512mb of RAM (i hope to get more).

    I actually emailed elgato, and asked them if the eyetv worked with what I have, they said no unfortunately.
