    Don't know, as we can't see your camera. (the crystal ball doesn't seem to work)

    What options does it give?
    What type is it? What options do you have on your PC?
    What operating system are you using?

    Very few PC's actually have SVideo inputs.

    To add to kiwiguy's comments/questions, you would also have to know something about the inputs on your PC/graphics card.

    For instance, just because your PC appeared to have a jack, you would need to know if this is for INPUT or OUTPUT. Some cards come with the jack, but are output only, meaning, they are intended to send the signal FROM the computer TO your TV screen.

    Is your camcorder digital or analog?

    As these two illustrious members have pointed out, we need to know what kind of camcorder you are using. If it's a DV camcorder, then firewire is the prefered mode of transfer--Your camera might have a firewire port--you just attach that to a firewire port on your computer and capture the video.
