  1. I have been trying to record video clips from tapes...

    I worked out how to do it, but the problem is, there is this cracking noise when I play it back..

    Does anyone know why this might be?

    Thanks alot.

    It could be that your VCR or whaterver you are using to transfer the tapes to the computer is sending an encrypted feed with it, so you can't pirate real VHS movies. Maybe try using an older VCR if possbile.

    Cracking noise - like audio was recorded with volume too high? Or noise in image quality?

    It's in the audio..

    The image quality is coming out perfect.

    Does it happen with every audio compression format you use to capture? You're using line in, not microphone, right? (Microphone connector has wrong impedance for VCRs and with its mic boost setting it will cause distortion)
