My question is simply: can the DisplayPort on a MacBook take a video input source?
- Macbook Pro Model 6,2 (Mid-2010) that has a DisplayPort output
- A camcorder that has HDMI output and NO FireWire outputs.
- A HDMI to DisplayPort adapter.
I want to know if its possible to use my camcorder like a webcam, i.e, to 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?
