Can capture video but no audio

Ok, I have successfully connected everything and put it on all the right settings and have finally gotten easycap to capture video straight from my VCR playing a VHS. HOWEVER, i cannot get the audio to work and its driving me crazy!! the tapes all work with audio when i hook the vcr to the tv so there is nothing wrong with all that. Any ideas?

    I have exactly the same problem, with the exception that I do have audio but it's distorted, I mean very distorted- sounds like flatulence! I have tried everything, it's driving me crazy. I wonder if I might suggest a new name for this product. EasyCrap might be better!

    I have windows Vista and is able to capture the picture on my computer. However, there is no audio even in the preview mode or after I replay the video capture from the EasayCap Capture USB 2.0



    Is there an option somewhere that I can set to let capture the audio. Please enter any of your solutions as many as possible as this is driving me crazy. Thanks in advance!!!

    so if you are watching the play back through the program and there is no audio and you capture it anyway, you are saying there WILL be audio once it is played back through a DVD, etc? if not, how do I do it so that it does go through the sound card

  • Alexdude333 Dec 24, 2008

    Well with me It can't find the composite/hauppage sound output on any capture programs (so not just ulead). There is one program that can find it: Windows Messenger... It's odd I know but it finds it when you go to set up your microphone

Other Thoughts:
Keep in mind that if you use the audio inputs it will not output that sound directly to your speakers like it might do if you use your soundcards. That's fine for capturing but if you intend to use it to be able to watch stuff on your computer screen then line in on the soundcard is they way to go.

EasyCap Won't Work With Vista


I am using the same system... I have figured out how to get video but i cannot get audio... after i have recorded a video i am able to hear what audio i should have been able to while recording but only after i play it back. The way to get video is to open the capture tab then click capture video then click options then click video and audio capture property settings. you then need to change your video input source to composite and your tv system to NTSC or PAL if ur in like UK or something.

EasyCAP Video Adapter with no video


Ok, here is what is going on. The default video setting in control panel> scanners and cameras> syntek 1160 is pal-b it should be NTSC_M. Right click on the Syntek 1160 and click Video Decoder Property. Change it to NTSC_M from Pal. Do this with the unit plugged in or it wont be displayed in the Scanners/Cameras options box. Right away the signal line should rear 1 from 0 with video hooked up. Keeping that setting to stay is my issue right now. I was so excited to figure it out, I had to post. I was about ready to throw the unit away. Its a program driver error. Hope this helps!!!

I had the same problem and found that if I went into the options and chnged the format from NTSC to PAL and then back to NTSC it would bring in my camera. Thanks to snrobby for the hint on the options idea.

Cannot get sound or colour to work


Sound:

I had exactly the same problem and solved it by updating the drivers for the USB sound/audio device.

My XP version is in Swedish so I´m not sure what it says in English, but it should say something like the following.

Go to the "Device manager" by right clicking on "This computer" and choosing "Properties", locate the "USB sound/audio device" under the "Sound, Video and Game"-category and right click and chose "Update drivers". Then chose "Search for drivers on the internet" and chose "Recommended installation".
My new drivers are called "USB EMP Audio Device". They work perfectly. Of course you have to chose these drivers under "Options/Input source".

I wasn´t able to update the actual EasyCap video adapter, but it doesn´t seem to matter if you´re having problems with the sound.

Video:

Click on "File", then "Preferences" then "Capture" flap, check the "Allow access to capture device´s settings" box, click "OK". Go the the "Capture" flap in the main window and chose "Capture video". Now you should see "Options", click and chose "Capture properties", then "Video capture filter", click "Properties" in the same window and the chose the correct "Videostandard", for example "NTSC" for USA and "PAL" for Europe. Try all of the alternatives until you get a picture.

Make sure you have chosen the right input source under "Options (see above/Input source". Chose Composite or S-video (you´re likely using composite). I can´t use an S-videocable, only a videocable, otherwise the picture turns black and white.

Now you should see something, if not, maybe something went wrong when you installed the drivers/software.

Hope this helps!

EasyCap Video Capture


Hi
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)

http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx?criteria=scart%20out&source=15&SD=Y

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"

Problem in Capture


I don;t know if this is the solution to your problem but it might work, as it did for me.

When you start ULead Studio click on the capture tab, then click on the camera icon named "capture video", then in the middle of the page you will notice the "options" icon (looks like a cog) go to Input source and then at the top of the window you will see "input source" again, click the dropdown list and select "video composite". Try that and see what happens.
