My question is simply, can the display port on a mac take video input source ?
More Details :
1) Macbook Pro Model 6,2 (Mid 2010) that has a Display Port 2) A camcorder that has hdmi output and NO firewire outputs. 3) A hdmi to Display port adapter.
I want to know if its possible to use my camcorder like a webcam i.e capture live video for the purpose of streaming. As a primary test, I should be able to connect the camcorder and do a capture using iMovie.
Would this be possible ? I am pretty sure input through usb wont work. And from what i have seen there is no easy way to convert the hdmi video stream into firewire. So, any suggestions ?
