    The EasyCAP USB adapters work with Windows XP. If your PC supports
    USB2 then it should fit the bandwidth requirements for most video
    cameras. Furthermore, if your software can encode grey scale videos
    that would save you a factor 3 in data rates.
    I'm using the EasyCAP USB adapter with a Watec 902H and am able to
    record data for a whole 12 hour night on my desktop PC running linux
    (a million frames). I must admit I am not recording video but using
    some sort of compression scheme. This reduces the data rates from
    30MB/s to 0.7kB/s, though the total data to plow through still adds up
    to 25GB.
