Question about DekCell EasyCap USB 20 Video Capture Adapter with Video Editor Software (CPA1280) Video Capture

1 Answer

When I capture video from vhs, the result is a lot worse in quality than the original tape. I have tried capturing avi and mpeg, it makes no difference. fixed bitrate at 8000, no difference. Highest resolution, still poor quality. I capture the video sequence, and burn a dvd from it, and plays the dvd in my dvd-recorder. No editing or conversion in between. What can I do to improve quality???

If you have the option, try capturing your video as MJPEG or DV format without compression, also the resolution must be 720x480 pixels (for NTSC) or 720x576 pixels (for PAL).
It will create a huge file !!! After this I recommend a dvd conversion with deinterlacing for better picture quality.
Hope this helps!

No Auto Stop on EZ Grab when VHS is done playing


hi, as long as you don't have a professional VHS player/recorder with a serial control, and a dedicaded software to control it, it is impossible for your soft to know that VHS as finished, you don't have the problem with a firewire input, as the control passes by the FW cable in the two directions, but you can solve that (easy way) by setting up the capture time to approach the real timing !
for the MP4 format, the easy graber doesn't capture in this format without the use of the CPU, because it doesn't have hardware encoding, so that's why you can't reach good quality by capturing directly on MP4, you would need a card like hauppage game capture to have full MP4 (H264) hardware encoding with really good quality, and without any CPU use !

How do i go about transfering vhs-c video from an


You have several options. But important one to understand is the limitations of a PIII computer like Armada e500. You may not have enough grunt to convert stuff, even after buying the necessary video capture devices which work on USB.

Also I am assuming you either have the jvc camcorder still available or atleast have a VHS-C to VHS adapter to play the tapes on a standard VHS tape player.

Unless you are having a lot tapes and need editing while converting, your better bet might be to go to one of the shops that convert these tapes on to DVD or a suitable flash drive which might work out cheaper and quicker.

The last time I did this thing (quality of my VHS-C tapes was bad) I bought a Samsung combined VHS Video / DVD recorder and used the dubbing feature to burn DVDs. Cost me about $150 a year ago. I was able to do some editing on the way as I was connected to the TV screen as well. Saved me the hassles of dealling with the PC type video capture devices and software.

Capturing MPEG-1 with Diamond VC500


After more thorough testing I think I partially solved the issue...
The Bad News:
Diamond wrongly promotes in multiple places that it only captures in MPG 1, 2 and 4.
Also most of the settings in the "Setup" tab capture a format different than is labeled. Here are my findings translated: DVD= MPG#, SVCD=MPG#, VCD=MPG1?, MPG4=MPG4, AVI=AVI...etc
The Good News:
After understanding their cryptic format names, you can capture in 8 different formats!! And the format I was interested in was AVI so I'm happy. :)

Is this the right product for me


Hello,

Yes, but make sure the model type is what is listed below although they should all be the same today as there are no standards war. For your PC you will need a video capture card unless your video card has it, chances are it doesn't. You would have an adapter already that came with your video card that has plugs coming out. There would be 5 or 6. If you don't go to tigerdirect.ca or newegg.com and do a search for "video capture card" Prices range from $50 and up. Get one with the best warranty is my advice and if you wish I will find one for you from a reputable card maker. Just ask me by commenting below. And if you have any questions about the details below just ask me by commenting back to me.

Poor Video Quality


My capture software defaults to capture specs of 720x480x32 at 29.97 frames per second. It previews video at 360x240x32 at 29.97 fps. What resolution is your capture operating at? How about the camera?

Transferring analog to DVD


I envisage two options for you: 1. Install a video capture card in your pc. Choose one that has ports that match your analog camcorder ports. Best option: Separate capturing using S-video + a separate audio connection. Common and simpler option: Campture "composite" video using one video + one audio jacks. You don't need a new camera to make DVDs from your analog tapes. 2. Buy a pass-through (must be this type, not all digital cameras have this function!) digital camera. Connection and flow: analog camera (or your analog VHS VCR)to digital camera (via RCA cables); digital camera to pc (preferably using Firewire)- all simultaneously. Here, the digital camera will perform the function of a capture card. You will certainly need a software to capture via capture card/pass-through digital camera to your pc hard disc. Your captured video on pc can be initially in AVI/ DV AVI(better options to edit) and then convert to MPEG2 (DVD) format, or directly in mpeg format (with poor editability). Frame size (capture resolutions) should be as big as possible. In any case you will need some basic knowledge on digital video, capturing, and editing. And all the nitty-gritty that you will need to know can be found somewhere like "Digital Video Primer" and "DVD Primer".
