Easy Cap USB VHS to Digital Capture Adapter Tutorial

I bought the Easy Cap USB adapter to convert my old VHS videos to DVD. It was somewhat of a hoop dream because I got it, finally figured out how to work it, then realized I was too lazy to bother recording all my VHS videos

But if you aren’t lazy like me, here’s a little bit of information that I learned that may help you with yours:

The drivers cause a few problems in Windows XP. I am a mac os x leopard owner.
There is a DC60 version which works in Windows and a newer DC60+ that has software for a mac. I bought this not knowing there was a mac version but got this to work on bootcamp. This is a DC60.
You need to compress video using DIVX Codex 6.8 on 1st pass. Also, the included software DOESNT work, but amCap v9.2 is free and works great. So you should probably download this and just give up with the crap CD they give you.

I would get this if you are savvy on downloading drivers and want to save 20 bucks. amCap v9.2 is free software and takes some trial and error to get things working. At first I thought I’d cry and be so frustrated trying to figure out how to get things to work in windows again after using a mac for so long, but it wasn’t overly difficult. I also thought I’d give a little demonstation, I’ve been told I have sexy hands. So enjoy.

    The drivers that are on the disc with Easycap don’t work with Win 7. Try looking for “Win 7 driver for Easycap” on Google

    Audio problems can be fixed by right clicking the Ulead desk top icon. On the compatibility tab tick the box Run this program and Run the program as administrator. It took ages to find this out but it works.

    Hi all,
    I tried EasyCap yeaterday, it works fine, but when I want to capture the analog VHS video the picture (video signal) tilts, dances – similar like the tracking problems that VHS players used to have. I tried to define smaller resolution and other ideas, but it still doesn’t work.
    Help if you have any idea! thanks
