Using the VidCap Demonstration Program
Gateway has included Microsoft® VidCap on your Gateway Solo Multimedia Notebook. VidCap is a video capture utility program that lets you display and capture video (single frame or video stream) from the Composite Video In port.
You cannot edit video using VidCap. You can purchase a video editing package from a software retailer.
· Single Frame captures one frame of video.
· Frames lets you manually click on specific video frames.
· Video automatically captures continuous video frames.
· Palette automatically captures the color palette from continuous and single video frames.
The default file name is always the last name specified. Select Set Capture File from the File menu and change the file name before you capture the video to avoid overwriting a previous video capture.
Set the amount of hard disk drive space you want the capture file to use, then click OK. A window opens asking if you want to begin capturing.
You can set the your file size equal to the amount of free disk space. However, we do not recommend that you use the total amount of free space. If you do, you will have to either delete your capture or other existing data to regain free space on the hard drive for other applications.
To learn more about the program's capabilities and how to adjust settings, select Contents from VidCap's Help menu or press F1 on your keyboard while running VidCap.
