The camera is on but I cannot for the life of me find software or anything that will allow me to stream the video onto my computer. It's just the yellow video RCA connection. I feel like I shouldn't need to connect anything else....
I should add that the total connection from camera to computer is: BNC -> BNC to RCA adapter -> RCA
The way you're telling us it's plugged to the PC, it looks like it's plugged to the SPDIF connector. That's for audio output only. What I'd recommend you to do is to grab a TV tuner, as these have the connections required, and you can use the bundled software to play your recordings. Of course, you watch TV as well, if you have a free jack for it! If not, your other alternative is to buy a video capture card. Something like this:
