Can I use my laptop monitor for fpv and how?

I finally had my first fpv flight today using a 7 inch dvd player's screen. Worked but could be so much better.
Does anyone have experience using their laptops to get live feed from their receivers? I know that hdmi won't work but S-video might. There is some hardware like ezcap that probably works but if someone has a way of turning a cable that has S-video plug and a rca plug to display the feed on laptop display that would be great.
Not only does the screen size (and quality) easily beat my dvd player, I can also use a screen recorder to record my flights.

Soo, if anyone has used their laptops for this or has any ideas, I'd really appreciate it.
