  • PC: Windows 7 or later, 2.0 GHz Intel/AMD CPU
  • 1 GB RAM, built-in USB 2.0 port
Elgato Video Capture supports the Elgato Video Capture hardware and can record H.264 and MPEG-4 video at a resolution of 640x480 with AAC audio. This format is suitable for video capable iPods, iPhones and Apple TV as well as importing to iMovie ‘09 without re-encoding.
