If you go on google and search ' AMCap ' you should see a download link, i think 3rd one down.
That should fix it because Easycap doesnt work very well with PAL.

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 - ''no input signal or signal is unclear'' Please Help!!!


In the ULead VideoStudio Application. Go to "Capture" tabbed panel. Select "Options" then "Video and Audio Capture Property Settings...". A window should pop up.

In the "Source" tabbed panel. Change the "Input Source" drop down menu to either "Video Composite" or "Video S-Video" depending on whether you are using the yellow or S-Video picture lead.
Change the "TV System" combo-box to PAL for colour and NTSC for black and white. On my computer S-Video option is showing black and white when using my Sky HD box, don't know why this is yet.
Try the above and you should get a picture. You can also change the frame rate and other compression techniques etc.
If it still doesn't work try changing your digital/sky/vcr/xbox picture settings to PAL for colour or others for picture preference.

Hope this helps.

Goodluck

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.

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.

Easycap


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.

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"
