    Hello Guys,

    Can anybody help me. I want to upscale some old VHS videos and burn them to DVD/Bluray.
    Ca be used the OSSC for this kind of work ?

    Any help would be much appreciated




    No, OSSC is not a good fit for this job. Its deinterlacing is designed for games and inevitably introduces some flicker. For films you want proper deinterlacing as you don’t care about input lag.

    OSSC also only supports RGB, so you’d need a way of converting your VHS players output to RGB before you could even get as far as getting a picture.

    Zsolt, you will want a good S-VHS tape deck with a time base corrector (TBC):

    That will give you a good quality S-Video signal to feed into your video capture card. Be sure to capture using a lossless codec like HuffYUV, or Apple ProRes 4:2:2 or better.

    The above link provides discussion forums and even a VHS to digital conversion service like what I’ve described, but I haven’t used the service so I can’t speak of the quality.




    Thanks for you support it was realy helpful for me. (BuckA51 & Gruntbuggly )
