    I am using the EasyCap system. Video is good, audio, sometimes, sounds
    off, like it is underwater. I uninstalled the program and reinstalled
    it works for two VCR tape recordings, then went back to under water
    sound.

U Tube has a host of fixes, but none worked for me.

One suggests popping the cover off and checking the terminal where the A/V connections go into the little PC board while listening for improvements.

Another tries other USB ports, another thinks you need to uninstall the whole thing, reboot, then
creep around in the memory startup variables and get rid of it all,

Still wondering if the damn things are mega defective. Pictures are real nice though.

My microphone not working


Dear,
Hardware troubleshooting Depending on whether you are using an internal or an external microphone, follow the steps below to see if the problem is with the hardware.Show all ' Hide allcollapse_individual_default.pngTest the internal microphoneThe internal microphone is located near the top of the notebook LCD display or near the bottom of the LCD display near the hinge. Use the following best practices to capture sound more easily.
  1. Adjust the notebook screen to place the microphone in the best direction for receiving sound.
  2. Click Start , enter sound in the search field and select Sound Recorder from the list.
  3. Click Record and speak into the microphone. Save the file to an easily-accessible location, such as the desktop.
  4. To play back the recorded sound, open the file using Windows Media Player.
  5. When using the internal microphone, choose an environment without background noise.
  6. If the recorded sound does not play back, continue to the next section of this document.
collapse_individual_default.pngTest the external microphoneVerify that the microphone port and the microphone are working properly.
  1. Test the microphone on a known, working portable tape recorder, another computer, or a device that accepts the microphone connector.
  2. Click Start , enter sound in the search field and select Sound Recorder from the list.
  3. Click Record and speak into the microphone. Save the file to an easily-accessible location, such as the desktop.
  4. To play back the recorded sound, open the file using Windows Media Player.
  5. If the recorded sound does not play back, continue to the next section of this document.
  6. If the microphone successfully records the voice, test the record function on the computer. If the microphone does not work properly on another computer or on a tape recorder, try using a different microphone.
collapse_individual_default.pngSet the default microphoneIf the external microphone is set as the default recording device, uninstall and reinstall the audio driver to change the default recording device to the internal microphone. The internal microphone should be the default recording device.To change the default recording device:
  1. Click Start , enter device into the search field, and then select Device Manager from the list.
  2. Expand the Sound, video and game controllers list.
  3. Right-click the audio driver , select Uninstall from the drop-down menu, and then click OK to confirm that you want to uninstall the audio driver.
  4. After the audio driver is uninstalled, click Start , enter backup into the search field, and then select HP Backup and Recovery Manager from the list.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the audio driver.
The internal microphone is now set as the default recording device. Basic troubleshooting
The following are some basic troubleshooting tools that you can use to restore your microphone's functionality, depending on your operating system and/or software preferences. However, it is recommended that you first run the HP Support Assistant as it can scan your current system configuration to automatically determine if your notebook requires updated software and device drivers.

Movie Jargon


CAM -
A cam is a theater rip usually done with a digital video camera.
A mini tripod is sometimes used, but a lot of the time this wont be possible, so the camera make shake.
Also seating placement isn't always idle, and it might be filmed from an angle. If cropped properly, this is
hard to tell unless there's text on the screen, but a lot of times these are left with triangular borders on
the top and bottom of the screen. Sound is taken from the onboard microphone of the camera, and especially in
comedies, laughter can often be heard during the film. Due to these factors picture and sound quality are usually
quite poor, but sometimes we're lucky, and the theater will be fairly empty and a fairly clear signal will be heard.



TELESYNC (TS) - A telesync is the same spec as a CAM except it uses an external audio source (most likely an audio jack in the chair for hard of hearing people). A direct audio source does not ensure a good quality audio source, as a lot of background noise can interfere. A lot of the times a telesync is filmed in an empty cinema or from the projection booth with a professional camera, giving a better picture quality. Quality ranges drastically, check the sample before downloading the full release. A high percentage of Telesyncs are CAMs that have been mislabeled.



TELECINE (TC) -
A telecine machine copies the film digitally from the reels. Sound and picture should be very good, but due to the equipment involved and cost telecines are fairly uncommon. Generally the film will be in correct aspect ratio, although 4:3 telecines have existed. A great example is the JURASSIC PARK 3 TC done last year. TC should not be confused with TimeCode , which is a visible counter on screen throughout the film.



SCREENER (SCR) -
A pre VHS tape, sent to rental stores, and various other places for promotional use. A screener is supplied on a VHS tape, and is usually in a 4:3 (full screen) a/r, although letterboxed screeners are sometimes found. The main draw back is a "ticker" (a message that scrolls past at the bottom of the screen, with the copyright and anti-copy telephone number). Also, if the tape contains any serial numbers, or any other markings that could lead to the source of the tape, these will have to be blocked, usually with a black mark over the section. This is sometimes only for a few seconds, but unfortunately on some copies this will last for the entire film, and some can be quite big. Depending on the equipment used, screener quality can range from excellent if done from a MASTER copy, to very poor if done on an old VHS recorder thru poor capture equipment on a copied tape. Most screeners are transferred to VCD, but a few attempts at SVCD have occurred, some looking better than others.



DVD-SCREENER (DVDscr) -Same premise as a screener, but transferred off a DVD. Usually letterbox , but without the extras that a DVD retail would contain. The ticker is not usually in the black bars, and will disrupt the viewing. If the ripper has any skill, a DVDscr should be very good. Usually transferred to SVCD or DivX/XviD.



DVDRip - A copy of the final released DVD.
If possible this is released PRE retail (for example, Star Wars episode 2) again,
should be excellent quality. DVDrips are released in SVCD and DivX/XviD.



VHSRip -Transferred off a retail VHS, mainly skating/sports videos and XXX releases.



TVRip -TV episode that is either from Network (capped using digital cable/satellite boxes are preferable) or PRE-AIR from satellite feeds sending the program around to networks a few days earlier (do not contain "dogs" but sometimes have flickers etc) Some programs such as WWF Raw Is War contain extra parts, and the "dark matches" and camera/commentary tests are included on the rips. PDTV is capped from a digital TV PCI card, generally giving the best results, and groups tend to release in SVCD for these. VCD/SVCD/DivX/XviD rips are all supported by the TV scene.



WORKPRINT (WP) -A workprint is a copy of the film that has not been finished.
It can be missing scenes, music, and quality can range from excellent to very poor.
Some WPs are very different from the final print
(Men In Black is missing all the aliens, and has actors in their places)
and others can contain extra scenes (Jay and Silent Bob) .
WPs can be nice additions to the collection once a good quality final has been obtained.



DivX Re-Enc -A DivX re-enc is a film that has been taken from its original VCD source, and re-encoded into a small DivX file. Most commonly found on file sharers, these are usually labeled something like Film.Name.Group(1of2) etc. Common groups are SMR and TND. These aren't really worth downloading, unless you're that unsure about a film u only want a 200mb copy of it. Generally avoid.

Using EasyCapDC60 with Ulead Video Studio 10.0. After a lot of probs(partly solved by using mic jack etc) can record old VHS tapes. But the sound is poor - a lot of reverb. Any answers? Thanks


You can play your VHS tapes on your VHS machine and use a better microphone that is placed at the optimum distance to eliminate feedback. This is not the way to go though because you are doing a valuable task with inferior way of getting a good result. Best way would be to get a VCR to PC Conversion System at an electronics store. I priced one at Radio Shack for $99. You probalby can do better at Fryes Electronics or look on the Internet (Google or Craigslist search amy turn up a better price or a used one).

If you and play your VHS through your current TV or Stereo system you may be able to use the audio out to your PC or other recording device.

The reason that the conversion system is so much better is that they are changing from the analog to the digital system and this is a direct way to rerecord the orignal recording without microphone feedback and room distortion noises.

Hope this helps you resolve your issue.

Vhs to dvd


I looked up your PC and it has a TV tuner card and media center. You should be able to do basic video capture from the VCR with what you have already installed on the PC. I hate to ask this, but have you looked through the manual that came with the PC? That would be a better source in this situation than Windows help. Windows help is very generic and not specific to your PC. I have a little older Gateway PC with a basic TV turner and I was able to transfer videos over. The first thing to do is get to the point that you can see the video playing in media center. You may need to set it up to play thru channel 3 (like we did back when VCRs first came out) and once that is done, you can start recording that "broadcast". Once you have the videos, you can burn them to DVD.

There are a few 'minor' things, but I think you have the basics on the PC you have to do the job.
