VHS to PC
I know that you can buy hardware, that's basically a VCR with a USB adapter that plugs into your PC, allowing you to copy your old VHS tapes to your computer.
But let's say I'm a tightwad, and don't want to invest a Benjamin into something I'll only use until all my old tapes are copied.
Can you get a cable with Red/Yellow/White jacks on one end, and USB on the other, and plug your old VCR into your PC? And would your computer software (say, Muvee) be able to read the input when you press Play on the VCR?
