I just got going with website videos myself. So here are a few pieces of advice I have.

1. Get a video camera that has a Firewire AKA IEEE-1394 connection.

2. Get a Firewire card if your computer does not have a Firewire port.

3. I like Ulead VideoStudio 8 for doing my video capture. Very easy to use software!

Mistakes I made:

1. Did not get a Firewire compatible camera.

2. Got a crappy video board.

3. Tried using free video capture software.

4. A super cheap camera makes crappy video.

If you have an existing Video camera (8mm), all you need is a capture card. You can buy decent external cards with software. You can get running for as little as 100 bucks.
