I have a video camera that only 'streams' the images and has no way of recording them. Currently I'm plugging the RCA into a TV and then recording from that, but I need to be mobile and so need to record onto a laptop.

Will something like this ( work?

Any other ideas?

That seems like an ideal solution. Converts analog to digital over USB. – JoshP Mar 5 '13 at 13:06

EasyCap 2.0 DC60+ is what I use, and they work great. Make sure you get the DC60+ version, you don't want the older versions.

There are a lot of knock-offs floating around--I'd stick with the official one.

There's also a good compilation of capture cards on this thread on the Wirecast Forum.
