XPS 8930 SE, Video capture help needed

Just purchased a DELL 8930 SE and I want to capture video. Anyone have some ideas about a device or PCIe card that I can use? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: XPS 8930 SE, Video capture help needed

Can you be more specific about what you're trying to capture and from where?

Win 10 does have a video capture app built-in but I don't know if this is adequate for your needs:

  1. Open the app you want to record
  2. Press Windows key+G at the same time to open the Game Bar dialog
  3. Check "Yes, this is a game" checkbox to load the Game Bar. This works whether you are recording a game or another kind of app
  4. Click on the Start Recording button (Win + Alt + R) to begin capturing video
  5. Stop the recording by clicking the red recording bar
  6. Recorded videos, which are MP4 files, will be in the Videos folder in a subfolder called Capture

Legacy Everything needs to be added back.  Control panel, programs, add features back to windows.

Windows Live Essentials 2012 needs to be reinstalled.

Directx June 2010 needs to be added back.

You download file and extract to a folder. Then Run DXSETUP.EXE as administrator.

Legacy OHCI Firewire Driver needs to be installed.


All supported x86-based versions of Windows 8.1 or of Windows 8Download Download the package now.
All supported x64-based versions of Windows 8.1 or of Windows 8Download Download the package now.

PCI-E 1394a firewire card with Texas Instruments Chipset needs to be installed.

You need to Add Cyberlogic Power DVD back so that Movie maker works.  This is a USB 2.0 drive on purpose.

The drive is the same cost as buying the software suite without a drive.

It also allows you to have an F12 Bootable Disk that works on ANY dell from 2006 to 2019.


You also have to add the feature back for Legacy Direct Show, DOTNET 2.0 and 3.5 from control Panel.  If you do all the right things in the right order it will work.  Control Panel, All Control Panel Items,  Programs and Features, Turn windows features on and Off,

Then do the checkboxes.  You MUST BE online when you do this because it will whine about not finding the features and needing to download them from windows update.

Once all of that is done you can use USB capture for analog video to movie maker.
