  Live Cams

Do you have a particular Video Capture card recommendation for use with PowerPod and my camcorder? I know some of the online webcam communities suggest cards by Winnov or Osprey, but since I'll be using TrackerCam I don't know what would be best. For live video chat...what card would you suggest?

If your camcorder has firewire, you don't need a capture card unless you want more control over the digitization process, like color balance and gain.
Most people just get the digital video from the camera with firewire.

If your computer doesn't have firewire, you should be able to get a PCI firewire card for $30. TrackerCam Software is designed to handle that. Most firewire cards also come with some video editing software that also takes firewire in.

If your camcorder does not have a Firewire connector or you prefer to use a capture card, we recommend the ADS tech Instant Video PCI. It's not expensive, but it does a great job and works well with DVdriver and TrackerCam.
