composite video on powerbook

How do I get a video feed (composite or S video) into a 15" powerbook from a DV camera. I can't go through firewire, the port on the camera is dead.

I also need to be portable,

Is there a piece of software that will take a feed directly from the S-video port

Thanks

    works great for me

    but it *might* be cheaper to get your firewire chip fixed on the dv camera.

    Yes that would work, but I need the xl-1 to work tomorrow morning. The quick fix is to run the analog video feed to another DV camera and then firewire into the Powerbook. Not elegant, but it will work until I find a better solution.

    Thanks

    the composite port is output so no luck there.
