Before opening the capture window, connect the camera or video source to your computer.

When the capture window is opened, it will search for any connected video sources. If it does not find an attached sources, it will default to the built-in iSight camera if available on the computer otherwise it will indicate none available. This is useful to know when testing connectivity between computer and video sources.

The cable used to connect a camera is likely to be a 9-pin to 4-pin or 6-pin to 4-pin Firewire cable. The 9-pin or 6-pin end of the cable connects to the computer and the 4-pin connects to the camera. Digital converters generally have a 6-pin connector, some have both 4-pin and 6-pin.
