Yes, I purchased a very useful video conversion gadget a few years ago, which I have been laboriously using to convert my massive collection of tapes and videos to digital files, stored on a spare hard drive or two. Most any video playing device can be plugged into one side, and, magically, the device outputs a digital version of your tape. I'm sure this could be rigged to work with your digital 8 device to output a live feed.
It is known as the "ConvertX PVR", small, and fairly inexpensive. Just plug this term into the search engines, and I'm sure there will be many places it can be ordered from. Good luck.
Hello out there. After much messing around I finally connected a webcam to my pc, a feat and a half for a pc cretin like me. I also managed to connect my Sony Digital 8 as I always wanted to convert my kids films onto CD. So far so good!!! doing pretty well. Now I am getting a bit more aventurous and I would like to find out if I can use my Digial Sony 8 as a webcam, great picture and magic clarity. Can anyone out there put me on the right track and tell me if it is at all possible and if so what is required ( software or Hardware)to achieve the required result.
I would greatefully appreciate any help as I am in the bush and pretty hard to get a knowledgable answer from pc retailers.
Thanking you in advance
