I think there is a cord that you can get that would go from the vidio camera kind of like you would to watch it on your tv when you hook it up. Or like the same thing you do with a dicical camera. But that's just kind of a guess?

There is a couple of things that you can do. One is to get a video capture card. They run between $100/1000's dollars depending on the quality of video you want to get. The video card allows you to connect your a/v cables into the computer and capture the video.
If you have a digital video camera and a mac or firewire enable PC, you can connect straight to the computer using the firewire port to capture the video.

I have an ATI all-in-wonder 128 card. You can hook up any NTSC composite or s-video signal directly to it and record and edit mpg's and avi's. There are a few cards in the all-in-wonder family ranging from around $70-$400. If you have a new or expensive (or both) camcorder you should be able to hook it up to either your usb or firewire port. Even with this you would need some sort of editing/recording software. Your best bet if you don't want to replace your video card or spend a lot of cash is to get some capture hardware. There are a few home-use kits in stores like best buy that include hardware to feed the video stream to the PC along with software for recording and editing. The simpler (low-end) kits are less than $100. They are ususally in the part of the store where the PC cameras (not full PC-independant digital cameras) are.
hope that helps!
