What's the easiest and least costly way to convert material on vhs tapes to mpeg or some other video format?

The easiest way is if you have a video card that accepts input from a VHS recorder or player. For example, I have an ATI All-in-Wonder and all I have to do is hook up my VCS or Camcorder and ATI has software that captures the video and saves it in mpeg format.

I was also wondering about how to convert vhs to mpeg or mpeg 2 format. Could you explain more about this card, and exactly how do you take video from your vcr and put it into your computer as a mpeg or mpeg 2 file?

The ATI program will allow you to watch the VHS while it records to a file format, of your chosing, onto your HD. Be REAL sure to read up on the file types, resolutions, and audio quality before beginning. The file size might be MUCH larger than you anticipate in the end. If you desire to burn them to CD or DVD, be sure to note the size of the file.
