Default canon vixia HF20

I can't get this camera to work with Procastor. I'm very new at this and need any advice that can be given

Dean,

How are you connecting your camera to your computer? If you are trying to stream through your USB cable this will not be possible. I recommend purchasing a capture device such as the Canopus ADVC-110 to connect your camera via composite cable.

Yes it does, as long as your Macbook Pro has a firewire port.

It does not have a firewire port. What alternatives are there for me to begin streaming?

There are other USB capture devices such as the Dazzle. We have however found them to not be as reliable.
