My question is simply, can the display port on a Mac take video input source?
More Details: I have
- Macbook Pro Model 6,2 (Mid 2010) that has a Display Port
- A camcorder that has HDMI output and NO firewire outputs.
- A HDMI to Display port adapter.
I want to know if it's 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 won't work. And from what I have seen there is no easy way to convert the HDMI video stream into firewire. So, any suggestions?
