Capturing VHS Audio to PC

by grewitch / September 16, 2005 10:45 PM PDT

I have a friend who needs to capture audio from a VHS tape to the PC. He's running on WinXP.
Is there a simple process to do this?

I was thinking of connecting the VCR's sound output to the PC's Line-In socket. And then using a program to capture it that way?

But I have no idea if that would work or which program to use.
