Guides on emulating older applications

BTV Pro is an application for the Macintosh that allows you to view, capture and edit video, and create stop-motion animations. It also has advanced capture features such as time lapse, motion detection, and DV input/output. It works with any Macintosh compatible video input source such as video input cards, TV cards, built-in video, USB, DV, and FireWire video sources.

I did add the files.
BTV Pro 6 does still run with Sierra, displays input of my T420´s built in camera, but does not save a usable .mov file. I don´t own anything older having a camera to try with.
10.8 or lower may be worth a shot as Apple changed core services a lot since.

Yes, add it. It seems like support has totally gone from this.

If the Top DL is for 5.4.1 then it is PPC & likely Carbon & compatible with PPC 10.4.x (& classic?) see this old DL page. Both BTV & BTV Pro 5.4.1 can be DL'd here too (as well as 6.0b7)

Got to ask tho'; Why are the classic 8.1 - 9.x tags enabled here? is 5.4.1 classic compatible too?

Anyone know offhand what version the top DL " (826.28 KB)" is?

Seems to be the BTV Pro 5.4.1 Installer.
Guess I´ll try whether its the carbonised one myself. Smile If no, I´ll add the carbonised one.
Shall I add the Universal 6.0b7 from 2012 as well?

The Purchase link above, is working for me. But on the page it links to, it says:

BTV and BTV Pro have been officially discontinued. We have a new product called SwiftCapture that has many of the same features, so if you got here looking for BTV or BTV Pro please have a look at SwiftCapture instead.

So the purchase link should be removed, or downgraded to an author's website link in the description area.
Edit: — done. Anyone know offhand what version the top DL " (826.28 KB)" is?

Is this the carbonised version already?
I found a 5.4.1 via Waybackmachine which is working with Rosetta.
The bensoftware site is down seemingly, same for KAGI, as we know.
Maybe we may add the later BTV flavours if that was OK with the author.

BTV Pro is shareware and still to be sold, I've added a link to purchase it. It's probably the best video capturing software for OS 9 and well worth the price.
