Video Capture cards, but you'd have to play ps2 on your monitor.


Are you sure? I think all the people that record SOCOM movies do it on their normal TVs...


When I recorded Socom 2 gameplay, I used my TV which has a video input and output. So I was able to view the game on my TV for convienence as well as my monitor for recording.


I'm not so sure I understand you there.


All I'm saying is I was able to view both on the TV and monitor since the video component cable that connected to my monitor was from my TV's video output.
 
I believe there is a component splitter you could probably purchase cheaply on newegg if you want to connect your TV and capture card to the PS2 at once.


kk, how does a capture card work? Do I have to put it inside my computer?

Yes. A PCI video capture card (VCC) will go into the PCI slot inside your computer. All you have to do is pop open the side panel unscrew a metal cover on the case, pop in the PCI card, secure the card with the screw. There will be directions that come with the VCC.

Sweet, how much should I expect it to cost? Also what is the cable I need to connect my PC to my TV? Do I need some special program for it to transfer to my computer?

you need a PCI Video Capture card, dont get the USB ones because they have a 4 - 5 second lag on them.
