How do you take pictures and or videos from the X-Box?

I have seen people do this, they have made home movies and screenshots, I would like to know how to do this.

Do I need another peice of equipment?

Thanks for reading :)

It's not too hard....Just patch the output video from the box into a camcorder/framesync/comp (if it has vid input anyway) and take what you want. If you try it with a standard vcr (read no framesync) you'll get a darkening of the imagery that makes it crapola at best.

I use my projector to snap screen shots. It has a built-in screen-grabber.

I got a computer right next to my X-box.. like 10 feet away.. so I would just have to get a some kind of cord hook the two together and I could take pics?

If you have a capture card, you can play your XBOX on your computer screen by plugging it into the back of the computer. Then it's just a matter of pressing the screenshot button. The bad thing is that it will cost you at least $50 (US) for the capture card.

Ask me anything about capturing. I'm somewhat of a pro. :cool:
