    same prob here only it says that the software is expired and i need to check the licence key? wtf?

    As for all 4 channels at once.. use snagit with easycap. It should do exactly what you need.

    I still have yet to get my software working grrrrrr.

    To fix the issue, click on property,Video Proc Amp tab, click on the drop down menu and select NTSC_M for color, NTSC_M_J for black&white. It should work. The only issue I'm having is compression rate.

    I have a two computers in the one, One with XP and one with Vista. The Easycap works on the XP but not on Vista. I get sound, but no picture. The capiture devise does not show up, and the install page shows that the device install failed. Is there a web site with another driver for the capture device that will work with Vista?

    Hello. I wanted to know if you know how to configure a EasyCap 002. In practice I can not configure SMTP Server. I put the server out of the mail in my case out.virgilio.it, then also enter your username and password, but when I try to test me says test failed. Could you help me somehow? Thou I'm very grateful!

From what I have experienced, EasyCap 4channel USB DVR (model: easycap002) does NOT do simultaneous 4-channel updates, rather successively updating each of the 4 channels one after the other, each taking, at the fastest update speed, about 1/2 seconds per activate channel. Also, I've been unable to make the included EasyViewer software do audio recording. Furthermore, in video record mode, EasyViewer ONLY captures ONE channel's video, not all 4 together.
I had better recording results, albeit only 1 channel with sound, using the software on the same CD named D:\drivers\files\stkatvap.exe although it requires some menu configurations to get it working --I'll cover this at the end of this post.
You are FAR better off finding some third-party recording software that MAY be compatible with this 4-channel easycap002... I don't know if there even are any compatible ones, however, but I know this EasyViewer crap they provided sucks.
I have had a LOT of problems with easycap002 4 channel USB dvr as well (hardware name is Syntek ST1160). I have it working periodically. Because I had the drivers already installed (as I am sure you do) I plugged in the easycap and clicked start > administrative tools > computer management > system tools > device manager .. right pane: +imaging devices .. right click on Syntek STK1160 and choose Uninstall and [x]delete the driver for this software. Unplug the easycap USB cable. Reboot. Login and insert the install CD that came with easycap run the autorun. Whith Easycap unplugged, choose Install Driver. If it asks you to "completely remove" then answer "yes" and after it is done eject and reinsert the CD again and choose "install driver" yet again to do the actual install this time. Click OK to the prompts to get the driver re-installed. Although you're on Vista, it installs as XP. After install is complete, plug in the easycap002 4-channel USB cable. Wait about 10 seconds to be safe then click start > administrative tools > computer management > system tools > device manager .. right pane: +imaging devices .. you should again see the "Syntek STK1160" there not having a yellow symbol over it. For the heck of it, reboot again then install the 4-port imaging software if you have not already. Be sure to plug in at least one device/camera so you have something to test. NOTE: I could NOT use the icon it put on my desktop, I had to literally go to the install location of the softwrae and run NOT easyviewer.exe at the root of the CD, but go into directory SYS\XP\ and use EasyViewer.exe there!!!! It will come up saying there is "no signal" initially but you'll see at bottom center it saying "search[ing]" so wait until that search is done so it can identify the cameras plugged in. Normally it takes up to 10 seconds for it to realize a source is plugged into one of the 4 video ports which makes debugging this thing take FOREVER. Also, initially try to use short length higher quality RCA cables so you don't risk signal loss which will complicate your troubleshooting. If you unplug a video source or the source shuts off, EasyViewer will say "video loss" and you are best to just kill and restart the EasyViewer software again - I've rarely had it re-recognize a reconnected source after plugging it back in without needing to restart the software.
If you're using less than all 4 input sources, disable the unused ones as it'll make display updates much faster by option Channel > channel control > [x]automatic ..uncheck what you are not using.. make Fast Turning:[x]enable .. and Turning Time: 1 Sec (the fastest each display will update) [ok]. Trust me, you'll want to do this to have faster display updates which are slowwww to begin with.
If video is in black and white it COULD be you have a low quality RCA cable, but likely is your needing to change setting Property> tab Video Decoder : video standard: ntsc_m (ntsc_m_j is black and white.) .. also Tab IMAGE : Video Sources: [x]Ntsc_m [x]Composite ...if on S-Video you won't see anything on this easycap002 4-channel model as it does not have an s-video input.
* What is annoying is that not all 4 channels are continually displaying. They CYCLE in updates, channel 1 taking 1/2 second, ch2 thereafter takes a 1/2 second, ch3 thereafter 1/2 sec, etc. This is why earlier I said to DISABLE any channels you are not using, saiving you 1/2 second of update time per disabled channel. I was hoping for smooth simultaneous updating. The only way to get smooth video is to watch ONLY 1 channel - do this by clicking at upper right of window Auto Turning Focus:OFF and click on the channel you want to watch in somewhat smooth mode (~15 frames per second (15fps)). Click Auto Turning Focus:ON when you want each to update, taking ~1/2 second each.
This slow 1/2 per channel update is rediculous.. It defeats the purpose of security video in my view, a person can just run across the channel's view and never be caught during the updates of the other channels which can take 1.5 to 2 seconds.
THE WORST PART: I've found NO WAY to record ALL 4 channel's video at once! I can only record a selected frame to video .avi !! Unbelievable. You CAN take a manual "snap shot" of all 4 frames however, but how useless is that. Clicking "RECORDER" locks up the LIVE display of all but the channel you're recording. Clicking "recorder" again to stop recording locks up the display for a couple of seconds but then resumes the alternating channel display updates.
Be warned: viewing the created .AVI is only reliable in Microsoft MediaPlayer, it only sometimes works in Apples' QuickTime viewer.
I've not been able to get sound to record in EasyViewer either.

I was able to get sound to work under another software provided on the CD. As mentioned at the start of this post, I had better recording results, albeit only 1 channel with sound, using the software on the same CD named D:\drivers\files\stkatvap.exe although it requires some menu configurations to get it working.
After running s5katvap.exe, plug your vid source into channel 2 of the EasyCap002 device, yes, the cord labled 2 and put the source audio into the white cord. Choose DEVICES > [x]Micorphone (usb audio interface ... OPTIONS>[x]Preview [x]Audio Preview ...
To make the video display smoother, you need to choose the video output format CAPTURE > CYCLE MULTIPLE VIDEO FORMATS > For the UnitedStates [x]320x240 UYVY or [x]640x480 UYVY
Note: Audio lags behind the video by about 1/2 second in the preview mode, but it is only slightly off when you playback the finished actual recorded .avi video file.
Now set where you want the capture to go to: FILE > SET CAPTURE FILE > ...
Now start recording with CAPTURE > START CAPTURE
Don't know if this helps much.
I'd appreciate any feedback anyone can give on better controlling software for this 4-port/channel DVR.

Use the latest drivers and applications on the manufacturer's website http://www.szforwardvideo.com/support/Supp_7_2.html Versions on the original CD have necessarily been burned before feedback from users has been obtained.

And don't expect to record live video at full resolution from 4 cameras simultaneously with a cheap USB card on an ordinary computer :-) Try finding an alternative that works better before dismissing this as "****". Johnjn's "best solution" is a useful if verbose description of what the device can do, but his expectations and judgements are unrealistic.

In XP I went to the Program files folder, into MultiView folder (after initial installation) and ran the program called "driver.exe" from there. It first uninstalled the driver. Run it again to re-install the drivers. I worked for me after that. There is still the matter that MultiView kinda stinks.

I received an easycap and have had no problems with it, i use it to post alot of vids on youtube and have no problems with it. out the box i was able to plug and play, after installing the drivers, if you read the packaging it tells you to NOT run any anti-virus software on your pc as it will conflict with the software for easycap, i have used all programs realated to ulead etc. with no problems. and while there is a 1/2 second lag using a pc moniter i find using a tv to actually game on a prevents that cause ur not looking at the moniter. personally i dont use the avi format i use the mpeg 2 format and even the dvd format when making vids of my games, i run vista and have not run into any of the problems so many people claim to run into. at first i too couldnt get sound to record in easy view, but after using the movie wizard, the sound worked in the easy view as well..

On each of my xp computers, I have to install the drivers, then plug in the USB Easy Capture Device and then restart my machine with the device plugged in. After that, everything works well until I unplug the USB Device.This works with an Intel motherboard, a ThinkPad T40, and a Dell EVO Workstation.

I have easycap002 4channel USB 2.0 DVR and svat model wse103 pinhole camera and its wireless receiver (Svat receiver). I am using Xp professional sp3. I installed easycap driver and multiviewer and they are ok.

When I connect my pin hole cam and its Svat wireless receiver to my TV input, I can see my cam view from my TV screen. This means there is no problem with you Svat pin hole cam kits, they are working well.
But When I connect my wireless receiver to easycap camera #1 connector, I am trying to find in my multiviewer program as camera # 1. But there is a message as no connection.
I am asking to you that maybe that pinhole camera receiver is not compatable with this easycap usb dvr or not? Or how can I see this wireless cam on my laptop screen?
Best regards.

I discovered that there are two versions of the Easycap device. One is NOT compatible with Vista, and one is. You have to check the fine print when you are buying the thing (online).

Have you tried finding the right drivers for the device?

Have EasyCap video capture device and vista x86


I have windows vista and my drivers load fine. Plug in the unit and the drivers load. I have the 4 camera easycap and the VCR easycap. Install drivers first before plugging in the unit. Restart computer, plug in unit, check device manager if there is a stk1150 loaded under image. My problem is getting small files from the recordings. I converted 2 mins of my daughters dance solo and it turned out 1.7gb AVI file without sound. Changing the options to mpeg or WV files will crash the program becuase something doesn't match. I need to play with it more to understand it better.
