I'm trying to decide which video capture board to buy. I've decided to go
that route as opposed to a QuickCam because I already have a camcorder and
it should provide a lot more possibilities. The Captivator seems like a
good choice at first because Tiger Software sells it for under $100 and it
does all the things I want it to do (CU-SeeMe, Video for Windows, frame
grabbing, etc.). However, I've read that it doesn't always work well when
recording still frames from a VCR or camcorder, and the manufacturer doesn't
plan to support its use under Windows 95 because it's been discontinued.
Does anybody out there have one, and have you tried it with Win 95? If so,
I'd like to hear from you.
