Question about Ulead Videostudio 8 for PC
I use EasyCap Video Adapter with Audio in order to convert my home Tape To VCD. When I connect My VHS Player output to easycap, the Ulead Videostudio 8 doe not show my playing tape. My connections are good and the usb driver is installed and reported by Windows as working. What need I do to make this work? Plz help...
I had the same problem. No picture and no sound.
Here is what I did to solve it.
1. I Un-installed the software and restarted the computer.
2. Placed the installation CD (that came with the product) back in the CD drive.
3. Click on "Install Driver" (this only installs the USB 2 drivers so that the computer can see the device)
Make sure you do not attach the Easycap Device before you have installed the USB Driver (as above).
4. Once USB Driver has been installed then plug in the Easycap USB Device, windows should then detect the new device, to make sure:-
5. Right Click "My Computer" "Properties" "Hardware" "Device Manager" check "Imaging Device" (which is where my STK1150 Driver was installed) and make sure it has no yellow exclamation mark next to it.
6. Go back to CD and "install the Uplead Software", you then have to Restart the computer.
Once all installed you can then connect your external device VHS Player/Camcorder etc to the Easycap device, using the Red/Yellow/White leads.
I like many before me, tried and I tried to get the image to play on the software "Capture" screen but all to no avail, I was pulling my hair out, I wasted two days on it, I finally decided that this product was a total load of rubbish and I had wasted my money and it had to go.
Then a major break through, some smarty pants made the comment about INPUTS & OUTPUTS, my prayers along with many others could have been answered ??....
I had actually plugged the Red/Yellow/White leads into the INPUT terminals of the external VHS Player, when they should be plugged into the OUTPUT terminals of the external VHS Player/Camcorder.
On a Camcorder the RED/Yellow/White terminals are usually Output terminals but on a VHS Player they are usually always Input only !!....
I tried running my Camcorder through the software and Hey Presto that worked a treat.
So in order to get my VHS to play through the software I ended up having to buy a Scart OUT (very important "OUT") Red/Yellow/White adapter (see link for product image)
Once all connected I pressed play on the VHS Player and I have to say that nearly fell off my chair "IT WORKED - IT WORKED - IT WORKED"

It takes a little messing around with the settings to get everything to work. When it does, the results are very good.
First off, make sure you use the version of the ULead software that came supplied. Later versions are not compatible with analogue stream capture, only digital.
Start the software, select the 'Capture' tab at the top and then select 'Capture Video' (mid-screen).
Now select 'File' > 'Preferences' > 'Capture'. Make sure there is a tick in the box 'Allow access to capture device's settings'. OK when you're done.
Now click the 'Options' mid-screen icon (looks like a cog) and select 'Input Source'. Make sure Input Source is set to either 'Video Composite' or 'Video S-video', not to any setting relating to a TV tuner. Next set 'TV System' to PAL or NTSC depending on you source material. (If you're not sure, US is NTSC, UK/Europe is PAL).
Below that, in the audio section, make sure 'Active Device' is set to 'USB Audio Interface'. OK when you're done.
Click on the 'Options' icon again, and this time select 'Capture Properties'. Select 'Video Capture Filter' from the drop-down list and click 'Properties'.
On the 'Video Decode' tab, select the correct video standard from the drop-down list (yes, PAL, NTSC and SECAM all have multiple standards!) If you're not sure, check here:
(Lists are at the bottom of the pages)
Next select the 'Image' tab and make sure you have the correct video standard and input source set here as well. OK your way back out to the main program screen.
With a bit of luck, everything should be working for you now! You shouldn't have to go through these setting everytime you use the program - They should be remembered.
Hope this helps!

I finally found a way to listen while playing
I had problem of only hearing after I record, just go to control panel, and look for the recording tab, then properties on your sound input, then search for, play it through,, and choose your speakers, sorry for not giving exact details due to difference in our OS's
hope this helps

I had problems with the EasyCap DC60+ USB video capture card recording only in B/W until I went to changed to NTSC_M as follows (in the ULead software that came with it):
Video Capture Filter
and set it to NTSC_M
Also I had to set the MS-Windows Sound Driver to "Use only default devices" as follows:
Sounds and Audio Devices Properties
Select "Use only default devices"

SCART connectors are common on European equipment. If you had a SCART socket on your VCR you would be able to figure out where the big plug goes :-)
What types of output have you got on your VCR (other than UHF)?
I would guess if you have 3 RCA connectors (but no audio out) you have some sort of 'component' output - probably YPbPr, possibly RGB.
If this is the case, it's bad news I'm afraid. The EasyCap requires a 'composite' video signal. (The difference is with component the signal is split into its component parts and carried on separate leads, with composite it is all sent down the same lead.)

It might depend on your VCR. Took me a little bit but i was able to get it to work.
I am using a Philips VCR. I connected 1 R/W/Y Composite Cable to Input 1 on the back of the VCR, to the R/W/Y/ Composite Cable.
Then (Obviously make sure the VCR is turn on AND Make sure TV/VCR is on so it Shows the VCR.
Then Turn it to (depending on what Line/Input you plugged the Cable into, but for me) Line/Input 1.
MAKE SURE IT IS on the same channel that the cable is plugged into or the video WILL NOT Show up on the computer. I Hope this can help.
IM me on AIM at JediMastr80 if this didn't help. Maybe i can help u if u are still having problems.
2 videos i took from the VHS Tape to my computer using this capture card. They did work good.

Use ulead 10 se and xp with it then it will work right

I think you need to go to options > capture property settings > imput sorce = Video Composit for using the yello cable or S-video to use the black one with all the pinholes. If you use S-Video and its black and white. It could be a bad connection or the cable is faulty. Just happend in my case.
