EasyCAP USB video capture device problem

I have connected an EasyCAP USB video capture device to my analogue camcorder to display its video output on my PC. Using Uplead video capture software, I get a video picture comprising moving-colour patterns (sound OK). I have followed out the Solution #3 of FixYa and it has not solved the problem. I need your help.

I have a panasonic pv-gs180 camcorder. How do I connect it to my hp pavilion slimline pc which has only usb ports?


Mini DV cameras are designed to use a firewire connection and not USB to capture from the tape.
There are some USB devices that can convert and capture using analogue outputs from the camera. These devices usually transcode the DV codec to a compressed format that is designed for playback rather than frame by frame editing.
If you choose to use a USB capture device, read the fine print carefully to determine if it's suitable for your specific requirements.

>I am assuming I do not have the camera hooked up to the computer properly....

Correct.
An analogue camera will require an A/D Converter in between the two.
Many mini DV Cameras can act as the A/D Converter if they have audio & video inputs.
The 8mm camera connects to the Converter with analogue cables and the converter connects to the computer with a firewire cable.

Using movie maker to upload from JVC GR-axm17u (older camcorder) Got it hooked up to pinnacle usb device. I see the movie clip on my PC but the quality is terrible. Looks great on my camera as it is...


The USB device may be converting the footage to a very compressed codec.
Computer playback is not intended for interlaced footage as the camera produces so this may impact on the viewing.
Converting Compact VHS is best done with an Analogue to Digital Converter over a firewire connection rather than a USB device if you wish to edit in Movie Maker.

No . In the screen it will come on Black & white mode only. But when you make it in disk & play on CD player then it will come in color.

How do i load tape to computer?


The simplest solution is to use a FireWire cable connected between camera DV output and FireWire PC Input.
If your PC or laptop do not has a FireWire Input, you can use an USB capture device like EasyCap connected to your PC by USB interface and to your Camcorder by RCA connector or S-Video connector.

I have old tapes from an old camcorder Sanyo VM-D66P that I want to capture to my pc, how do I do this?


There are several ways of converting your tapes to a digital format.
1. By routing it through a DV camcorder with AV-input (these are increasingly rare though. (using firewire).
2. By using a device like this, which converts to DV. (also connects via firewire). http://www.dv247.com/invt/23453
3. By using a device which captures to MPEG2.

The cheapest way is option 3, but it requires a working camcorder. You should purchase a device similar to this: http://www.avforums.com/forums/attachments/camcorders-video-editing/85846d1216145397-camcorder-computer-easycap.jpg


If you don't have your camcorder anymore, or it isn't functioning, you should try to get a second-hand 8mm camcorder with firewire. This way you are able to directly convert your tapes to your pc.
If you can't find a firewire camcorder you could just settle with a good functioning 8mm camcorder but you will have to buy a capture device as mentioned above.
Good luck!

Using sony dcr-sr36 as a webcam


Unfortunately is not possible directly - Your cam do not support USB streaming... But You may use any cheap video capture device like Pinnacle Studio movie box or similar to connect Your camera via S-video cable because Your camera has an analog output. Only one requirement - the capture card must have an S-video input or simply RCA video input. It's easy - connect video out and audio out of Your cam to the capture device and then connect USB of capture device to Your computer.
Good luck!

Connecting analong camcorder to computer


The only Analog camcorder that has a USB Connection for transferring pictures or video is the SC-L770. The SC-L770 can transfer video (live or recorded) and still photos through the USB connection. You can also transfer audio using the audio cable provided. After installing the driver and software, you can begin transferring data using the software provided. Connecting to a PC 1. Connect a USB cable to the USB port on the PC. 2. Connect the other end of the USB cable into the proper terminal on the camcorder. (USB jack) 3. Connect the audio cable to the Line input jack of the PC. If the PC has no Line input jack, connect the audio cable to the MIC input jack. In this case, however, a noise may be produced depending on the PC. Notes: * If you disconnect the USB cable from the PC or the camcorder while transferring, the data transmission will stop and the data may be damaged. * If you connect the USB cable to a PC via a USB HUB or simultaneously connect the USB cable along with other USB devices, the camcorder may not work properly. * In this case, remove the other USB devices from the PC and reconnect the camcorder. Some other Analog Camcorders have a snapshot mode which allows you to take a still photo with your camcorder. However, you cannot transfer these to a computer unless you purchase additional hardware such as a capture card. Some capture cards have analog a/v inputs which will allow you to use the a/v outputs on the camcorder to connect to your pc and transfer images and video. You can purchase a capture card at most computer and electronics stores. Samsung does not support capture cards.
