Question about Ulead Videostudio 8 for PC
Posted by campbells126 on Jan 06, 2009
Transferring standard VHS video to recent model Toshiba laptop running Vista using EasyCAP leads and version 3.1A software. First problem: leads are female as are the outputs on the back of the video. Solved this with a SCART splitter and three channel male-to-male leads. The picture transfers fine but the soundtrack is VERY distorted. Tried various changes to settings (format always seems to end up as AVI, whatever is selected). Tried transferring mono only sound but same result every time. Any ideas? Solution #1 posted on Jan 06, 2009

Do you hear clear sound when Playback VCR? Please check sound source, this should be OK.
Comment posted on Jan 06, 2009 Confirm that sound source (VCR) produce good sound in playback. Next is medium that carry sound to laptop, i.e lead or wire. This should be in good quality and if possible, test it on other equipment. Let me know what kind of input terminals on laptop as VCR would have RCA pins as in/out. Thank you for your response, welcomejee. Yes, early on I made sure that the soundtrack problem did not lie with the original - it's not professional quality, but it's fine. As for the leads, at first I used a set which I already owned and subsequently, when buying the scart splitter, bought a new set, so unlikely to be the leads themselves? The EasyCAP takes red, white, yellow RCA (also offers 'S' video connector but as my material is standard VHS, I have ignored this) through a small box to USB which connects directly to a USB port on the laptop. Any further thoughts? Regards campbells126
Thanks for update.
Can you please post image of that small box as its some thing new to me which takes standard RCA composite video and gives out direct to USB port? Does this box digitize the audio-video signal for USB?
