Depends on the output of the VHS player. Mine has analog (to the analog cable or antenna input of the TV, channel 36) and SCART (to the SCART on the TV). Most likely your Mac (unless it has an analog TV card) has none of the two.
And even if your player has HDMI out, it's unlikely your Mac has HDMI in.
So the best thing would be to buy or rent or borrow a DVD recorder like found on http://www.ebay.com/bhp/vhs-to-dvd-recorder, with the right input for your player.
If you look around, you'll find many shops, companies, persons or freelancers that will do it for you, just like they convert even older super-8 movies to DVD. But for a dozen I think that DIY with the right hardware is much cheaper.
Hi! I have about a dozen home videos that are VHS PAL format and I am looking to digitize them. I have a PAL/NTSC VHS player and a Mac.
I have read through all the forums I could find on this topic but the most recent one was already 4 years old, which in the world of technology can be a significant amount of time. At least that is what I'm hoping in this case.
Any advice on which cables/converters, and software might work best would be truly appreciated! Eventually, I am hoping to get these burned onto both NTSC and PAL DVDs
(family is spread out over both regions.)
Thanks again for any advice you may have!
