Your computer is the center of your audio and video work. You play CD, VCD, and DVD on your computer. You make your own movies on your computer. You even watch TV on your computer. Why cannot you play your DV tape on your computer?
Capturing from DV tape is a easy thing to do. Yet, viewing the DV tape is not. You have to use a DV capturing software, which is not designed for viewing and gives you a tiny preview window.
PlayDV is designed from ground up to be a viewing software. It gives you full control over the camcorder at your finger tips.
