Anyone know...

...If the VG20 can be used as a webcam? 'Cause it would be super sweet if it could.

Re: Anyone know...

How are you thinking of hooking it up? HDMI? Component? It's probably overkill for a "webcam", but should be "possible" I would think, with the right input and software on the computer.

With an Intensity Pro on the latest drivers and Xsplit, it is possible. The computer takes the Xsplit output as a webcam.

Re: Anyone know...

Let me answer my own question:

Sometimes I forget that the VG20 has composite out. It's not super great quality, but it works.

I use an older "Dazzle" video breakout box which connect to my PC via a USB cable. I hook the 20's composite & audio cables into it and BAM! it records just fine. Before I was recording mu bumpers, then putting the car into a reader, then uploading it, then accessing it with Vegas.

So I save a couple of steps. BTW, you can see the end results at my "tv station" at:
evilgeniusentertanment.com

We're looking for original horror, scifi, or action flicks - full length or shorts.
