I recently got a KWorld Video capture card. I installed the device and attached software to my new desktop (OS:WinXP home edition). I hoked up with my VHS using the composit input (yelow, white and red). But I only can catch video. There are no audio input to my computer. I checked my computer audio input, it works well. Is there someone can tell me what's happened and how can I solve this problem? Thank you.

Re: how to input audio with capturing the video?
Try opening your volume control/sound properties and see if the volume is muted for the external input tv/tuner ect. If all is well there do like Tom said and UPDATE the capture software and even the drivers for video card and sound card. Also check sound properties for input output and microphone. Select the proper sound playback.

To transfer any audio or video casette to cd you need an audio casette player/vcp or vcr for playing back the video on the computer, a video capture card installed on the computer and the software to capture the video like Pinnacle which will save the audio/video file in mp3, mpeg format on the computer. The casette player or the vcr can be attached to the computer tower through the video capture card.
How are you plugging it in to the capture card? Some cards are video only, You have to buy a card that does video and audio. Most have an adapter that connects to svideo, and rca. I would go with a usb unit. That is what I use. Thanks
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
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.
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.
The problem would appear to be your audio settings.
You have the audio input set to Realtek HD Audio Input. That is the audio input on your soundcard, not the video capture card. You will need to change this so that you have the capture card selected. (I am not familiar with this exact model of card so I can't tell you exactly what it will be called.)
Alternatively, if you are trying to capture the audio via your soundcard (not recommended as it can cause sync problems) you will need to make sure that the 'line in' channel in enabled in the Windows mixer:
Start>Control Panel>Sounds & Audio Devices>Audio Tab>Click Volume in sound recording section>Tick Line In
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)
