    is there any way to do this with video?
    same setup but a program on the computer that coverts the noise into a video image?

    To record video and make DVDs with your computer, you need a video capture card and video editing software. You would then feed in the signal from a VCR or a video camera. I don’t have details of this, but I think software (for at least the most basic recording) is included with video capture cards.

    No, i mean, the same process with listed above but a program on the computer to convert the wav or mp3 into an Avi or mpeg

    OK, I’m not sure what you mean by “convert the wav or mp3 into an avi or mpeg.” Do you mean something like the visualizations in Media Player?

    I suppose software of that kind might exist. Does anybody know any particulars?

    BINGO except like a movie or something eg, you record the video file with the staement above and you play on your computer, which then translates the sound into an image!
