Which video board for my PC????

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Hi! I want to create VCDs out of my Home Videos. O.k. To get the Video into the PC i need a video-grabber or something like that. The point is that I don't know what to buy? Cards that use mpeg (like Pinnacle MP10/Fast Clip Master) would fit perfectly, but they can't capture a higher resolution..... Other cards with the mjpeg routine are able to capture higher resolutions but normally can't encode in the mpg format and I don't know if these software encoders are so great: I created a video with my old video board as an mjpeg avi and then encoded them as mpg....but the result looks pritty ugly (by the way my old board is broken, so that I need a new one)

It would be nice if you could tell me your experiences on this field.

Good Quistion, does anyone know of a good forum to ask quistions on video boards? a good place to buy is www.videoguys.com and they do have info there on boards.
