Raspberry Pi Analogue

Hi, does anyone know if I can use a Raspberry Pi 3 to connect to an old sony camcorder using the analogue port. Would it recognise the camcorder and let me upload the video to a monitor to watch and import with a view to converting them to digital? Have tried with my laptop using easycap connection ...

Re: VHS video to computer

Thanks for replies. Can't afford a new vhs to dvd recorder and don't want to buy a second hand one. I have looked at various reviews and lots of the cheaper ones don't seem to be capable of capturing clear audio. i was really after a personal recommendation but not to worry, thanks for your time.

VHS video to computer...SOLVED

Hi, can anyone recommend a video capture adapter and software that I can use to capture my old vhs video cassette tapes to my laptop. I would also like to be able to edit them and play them on my tv, if possible. Cheers.

Open DNS

Hi. I have watched some videos recommending using Open DNS for a faster and more secure internet connection. Can anyone confirm this through their own experience? Also I have looked at Open DNS .com and it requests that you register with them and give them certain details. This is not the case in th...

Re: VirtualBox

Thanks for replies. I think you are right about my laptop being too weak for virtualbox. I am thinking of cutting my losses and buying another newer more powerful laptop. I would like to keep windows on it and dual boot with a linux distro. Do you know what I should aim for to run this set up, or wh...

VirtualBox

Hi, I have a problem when I try to download VirtualBox. I have downloaded it successfully in the past but always failed to get an OS working. I get to the point were the OS boots into the virtual window but then nothing happens. So I thought I would uninstall it and start again, however now it won't...

Re: Sound Fault

Thanks for your time and effort. It sounds complicated to me so I will probably just put up with it, because it only happens now and then, and I can always just use the headphones. Cheers.

Re: Sound Fault

Sorry about that, but I am from England and was using the English language. Anybody from England speaking English would know straight away that "intermittent fault" when it comes to sound, means that one moment you can hear sound, for example music, then the next moment you can't. Also sorry again, ...

Hi, I have an intermittent fault with my audio. I use an acer laptop running Mint 18.1 Cinnamon 64 bit 3.2.7. Not always but quite often my sound breaks up and then continues, and then breaks up again. This only seems to happen when I watch a video, for example on youtube. However if I put my headph...

Most secure distro

Hi, got what could be a stupid question. I have another laptop that I would like to install a different distro on. I intend to only use it for the internet and downloading programs. I was just wondering if there was a more secure distro, one built for internet security. I have had a look at distrowa...

Thanks again, youtube-dl works great, in the terminal. But sometimes I would just like to download the audio from a music video. In other words an mp3 rather than an mp4. I have tried using the youtube-dl " URL" -F command and lots of lines appear but then I don't know what to do. Is there just a co...
