Using this with a mac.

1. Plug into mac on one end, VCR on other
2. Run Quicktime
3. Select File/New movie recording
4. Here’s the tricky part: you see then little “v”, next to the record button? That’s where you select this device for input. Do this for both Audio & Video
5. Quick time has its own volume control. It defaults to off. Turn it up, if you want to hear audio.
6. Press play onVCR
7. Hit record button.
8. It does not auto stop. So pay attention.

Quality seems to match what I see on the TV when I play the VCR. VHS has crappy resolution, don’t judge the device for bad tapes.
I did get slightly different results on a second recording. Running the tape out to the end and rewinding might make a difference.

Works well. Easy to set up. Requires no extra software (Quicktime is preinstalled on all macs).

One downside is it produces uncompressed video. HUGE (20 GB an hour). You’ll need that much free space. You can save as MP4, I believe, but it records first in the original size.
UPDATE: on the same ??v?? next to the record button, you can also select quality. Select the lower one, which is still higher resolution than VHS, then sizes are more like 1GB/hour. Way better and shouldn??t lose you any picture quality!

This is cheap garbage that broke as soon as I plugged it into my DVD player. The gold casing on the video pin split and snapped right off! I had a bad feeling before I even plugged it in…

You know, I could instantly tell by the lack of heft to the cables that it was going to be vastly inferior to the old ones I bought in the ’90s. It never used to matter much which brand of A/V cables you bought because they were all more or less the same decent quality. Now that these are outdated tech, good luck finding a quality set. These sure aren’t it!

Customer Questions & Answers

I just purchased a combination vcr/dvd player, and the instructions have a separate cable for the video in/out. is this the case with this product?
Answer:

Hello Anji888, thank you for your interest in our products. There are 3 plugs on both ends of this cable. The yellow is for video, red and white are for the audio. One end goes into the vcr/dvd to output the video/audio and the other end goes into the TV inputs so you can see it on the TV. If you have any further ??

Will this work on my Samsung smart tv?
Answer: Yes

I get two different video resolutions on different macs. why? one was 640×480, other 720xsomething.
Answer:

Hello Voracious Reader, thank you for your question.

For more questions, please give us a call between the hours of 7 AM ?C 8 PM Central??

Does this have a thicker yellow cable than the red/white ones (or are they all thin)?
Answer: all the same size, but are joined together at about 4 inches from connectors

do these work for high definition?
Answer: Hello Amazon Customer, thank you for your question. No, this will not work for high definition.

is there a 20 ft GE audio cable
Answer:

Hi Nancy, our supplier tells us there is no 20 ft GE audio cable and this one (at 15 ft) is the longest audio cable we carry. If you need longer audio cables, you may have to consider going with speaker wires that come rolls of 50 ft and longer. However, speaker wires are not terminated like this RCA audio cables are a??
