For better video quality with EasyCap USB video capture card:

1. Install FFDShow codecs to Your Windows: http://adf.ly/1310198/ffdshow-codecs
2. Use gold plated cables and adapters - s-video is normally a little bit better than composite
3. Check that all contacts between devices, cables and adapters are tight enough
4. Do not use any extension USB cable - put EasyCap/EzCAP straight to the computer's USB port
5. Switch off all other programs during capturing
6. Capture with max resolution 720x576px PAL, 720x480px NTSC.
7. You must have a powerful computer - check that CPU Usage is under 50% during
capturing and if it goes over, so buy more RAM and/or better processor and/or
better graphic card and/or faster hard drive.

how can i play AVI files on my media center/player on vista


Hi,
Windows Vista Media Center won’t play Xvid and Avi files, even if Windows Media Player will play these files. If you want to add support for third party codecs including Xvid and Avi files in Vista Media Center then you need to install the media control plugin for Windows Vista Media Center.
To install the Codec please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser..
http://damienbt.free.fr/index.php#download
This plugin allows Windows Vista Media Center to utilize te FFDShow decoder, which needs to be installed seperately ((FFDShow rev 1108 recommended: download the last version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow-tryout)) FFDShow adds support to Vista for MPEG-4 video formats like DivX, Xvid, H.264 and also alllows MP3, AAC, Dolby AC3, and OGG Vorbis audio files to be played back.
have any other queries, please let me know..
Thank you.....

You need the proper codec to decode the video. You can hunt down the correct codec, or you can install FFDShow, which will take care of most decoding for you. FFDShow is free and can be found here:
