How can I plug my PS2 into my PC?

In preparation of what will likely be a nationwide lockdown, I'm planning on attempting to make some extra funds/fill my time with streaming, but I'd like to stream some goldies from PS2. What all would I need to be able to do this?

    You will need a capture device, like an internal capture card or HDD recorder. A dedicated device like Hauppauge HD PVR 2 is very good for this type of applications. 

    Here is a link for devices that you can get to record.

    Make sure you have composite video cables too:

    If you want direct connection, then make sure you have at least a Windows 7 or higher, and use Ethernet connection with the PS2, but that would just give you a network crossover.

    I'm not certain if you can record though. It would have to resemble to you recording a TV channel on a USB or something like that.

    If you insist on plugging your PS2 in to your PC you can either use a capture card or use a USB ATSC TV Stick. just as long as the stick has a coax end for the antenna.

    You’d need to get a capture card, or use an emulator.

    Might as well use an emulator at that point.
