Hi all. I have looked through some forums and haven't quite found anyone else in my situation so heres my story.
I want to copy DVD to a DVD that my computer will let me edit. I'm a science teacher and I want to include short clips seemlessly into my classroom through powerpoint so I need high quality and editing ability.
I understand things are copyrighted and I really don't want to make copies of these things just the 3 mins that might interest 8th graders. I was thinking that I could use my Apple laptop to play the DVD and send its screen image out through the S-video port into a DVD recorder to copy what I want thus by passing the macrovision. Ultimately I want to take this CD to a computer, edit it and convert it to a quicktime file.
Does this sound possible? Can anyone suggest a recorder?
- I like the Sonys that are able to record live TV and use a device to turn on the cable box for you. I was just about to buy one when everyone on a forum said that their copyrighting is so ridiculous that it won't really record any live TV and even the things you make get copyrighted as well so you can't copy them again.
I would like to record somethings from TV that I might be able to also use and like I said, edit in a computer and save to a quicktime file.
Is there any players that Sony makes or another brand that isn't so strict?
Thanks a lot everyone. Some other info you might need- I live in New York City just in case you might need to know whats in my market.
Oh, I looked into PC capture devices but I heard nothing but misery unless you spend around 400. I rather try to stick to the DVD recorder.
