linux analog video tape -> digital format

There are two parts. First there are many different types of video format to consider, what do we need as an outcome? DivX, Quicktime, swf? Start by considering that, or whether it might have to go out into multiple formats or be edited. Next is taking the old RCA video outputs from a VCR and getting the analog audio and video into the Linux box for capture and potential editing before burning to DVD, sending to YouTube, whatever. Finally, there is a layer that's software for editing, but that will likely be a separate post, so I'm not considering that one here.
