If you would like to record video's on a budget, I would suggest to go for a Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 (€ 80) or Quickcam Sphere AF (€100).

If you have more money to spend, you can go for a DV camcorder (€ 200 - 300 or so

I got myself a Sphere today, and I certainly like it more than my photocamera which I used until now for shooting some video. Probably going for a camcorder in the future (when the ship of money arrives again smile.gif).

Does your camcorder have a DV out connection (firewire preferably)? If so, you can connect it with an IEEE1394 firewire cable to your PC to either capture video directly or load in from your camcorders tape to the PC.

USB cable is also possible for loading to PC (however direct streaming would probably be laggy).

It depends on which camcorder you have. I have an older one which requires a converter type piece of hardware for me to be able to get the video on the PC. Which one do you have?

Which camcorder do you have exactly ?? They feature most often a firewire connection (and you will need a firewire interface on your pc)...Than you can start a video capture software and transfer the footage from camera (press record on PC and play on camcorder)..Same thing goes with usb connection (I think , haven't used that option myself)..Also if your camcorder is older you may don't have that firewire connection so the procedure is a little more advanced...Which one you have ?

You're camcorder is equiped with an USB 1.1 connection for PC use, it appears not to have any firewire connections. According to the manual (http://www.dxgusa.com/Support/Manuals/English/dxg305v_eng_v4.pdf), it is possible to set it up as a webcam (see page 46 - 47).

I would try this out first and see whether it gives OK results, if not you can record on the SD card and then transfer the videos via the USB to your PC.

Did you take a look in the manual which I linked in the previous post ( http://www.dxgusa.com/Support/Manuals/Engl...305v_eng_v4.pdf ) ? In the manual the process is actually quite well explained.

Let me now if you need more info (which part do you understand, and which not), and I will try to explain in more detail smile.gif

@Ivan: Model is a DXG 305 smile.gif

Check out the manual Velvet Roger posted (great find man!!)...It seems that you can record on your Camera's internal memory (I guess it uses SD card) and then connect it via usb to PC and transfer the file...When you connect it it should show up in "My computer" as "Removable Device" or something similar..Browse that drive and find your video file there..
After that you can upload a file to youtube.com and link it here in the forum using "embed" code you get there.

Also keep in mind that after recording you will probably need to compress the video. If you don't compress it, the file itself will be pretty big in size. You should be able to do this with windows moviemaker, wich comes free with windows. Dunno about macintosh tho.

OK, it seems that your camcoder is recording to internal SD memory card. You should record one test video to see how it works. You can use Windows Movie Maker that comes free with WIndows, or free program called Virtual Dub to edit the video.

When you get a test video done, you can use free converter to flv called Moyea Video4Web Converter. Then upload to YouTube, and you will have embed link when you upload it. Just paste that embed link here in your post and it will show up on the forum as embedded YT video.

Then we can start commenting your video and give you some advises on how to improve quality if you want mate.
