I'm currently using this USB capture device
. The sound (regardless of the source, it seems) is always tinny and weak... maybe 1/3 the volume it should be. Would putting a preamp in between the source and the card improve things? Am I resigned to mixing sound in after the fact? [more inside]

I would like to capture/download streaming videos and be able to burn them to DVD. The only problem: they are on secure-access educational databases that I can only get through my University's library website. The two databases are Theatre in Video and Films on Demand. Films on Demand has 3 players: Windows Media, Quicktime, and Flash, while Theatre in Video uses a Flash player. Any way to do this? No nefarious or profit-motivated reasons; it is just far more convenient for me to have either files on my computer or on a DVD to watch for my research.

I'm looking for a cheap device to import VHS video onto my MacBook. I've looked at the Canopus ADVC55
but it seems like overkill for what I need - I just want to turn my old home movies into DVDs.

I've got to take some short sequences of gameplay off of the outputs of a gamecube, an old nintendo, and a SuperNES, and produce a CD with the video on it. Since all of the machines have RCA out, it seems pretty straight forward, right? What equipment will I need, and are there any pitfalls I should be aware of?

I've accidentally found myself in possession of a Pinnacle Blue Box for capturing video and am wondering where I could find a card with the 26 pin connector required to hook it up?
