Run the AVS Video Recorder executable using the desktop shortcut or the Programs section of the Start menu. Make sure you work with the Capture tab. By default output video format is set to Recommended (MPEG-2), since your final goal is to have your video in DVD format, that suits fine although there is no reason why you should not select Native or MPEG-2 (with some other presets):
Now define where the captured video should be saved to. Click from the Output path section:
Choose a directory to place the captured video in and name the file:
Switch to the Settings tab. Drop down the Video Device Input control and choose either the Composite option in case your VHS player is connected to the capture device using an RCA input or the S-Video option if you preferred an S-Video jack:
Press the Start capture button of AVS Video Recorder and begin the VHS recorder/player tape playback. You can stop capture by pressing the Stop Capture button which will replace the Start Capture button immediately after clicking it:
After having finished capture click the Convert icon in the Preview screen:
AVS Video Converter will be launched with the video you have just captured as an input file, in case you don't have it installed the window that suggests downloading the application setup file will appear. After that don't hesitate to convert and burn your video onto DVD.
