While slowly being replaced by digital cameras, analog video cameras are still fairly common, and favored by some for their longer recording time. However, since the data is analog, it needs to be sent through an analog-to-digital converter before it can be used on a PC. The usual way of doing this is by connecting the camera to a TV tuner/capture card and using the v4l2 import module as if capturing material directly from television.

Another way of converting analog video is the usage of converters like the Pinnacle MovieBox DV.
