Works great after you get it to work! – EasyCap USB Video Capture Adapter Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
CHEAP way to get stuff captured from other video sources. The usb extension cable is a very nice bonus since this product is semi-geared towards notebooks.
Cons:
Driver on CD is Syntek STK1160 instead of the STK1150 in the instructions. I had to manually find the STK1150 device when installing. Also, not very good instructions... various grammer errors etc. Absolutely NO contact or website information in case there is a problem. Must purchase RCA/S-Video cable separately in order to use device.
Other:
DO NOT PLUG IN before installing driver on CD. When going through set up, check the option that you will find the item by manufacturer. Locate Syntek and the STK1150 will be the only option. Click on that and install driver from CD to get it to work. Then plug in USB to get it to work.
Bottomline:
If you make sure that you install the driver, then plug in USB, then plug in the RCA/S-Video into TV-OUT (not directly to VCR or DVD etc). Finally in Ulead make sure that you right click on the video input and make sure that it is set to 'Video Composite' and that the audio is set to the USB device. Can be frustrating to configure if you don't know the diagram of how it is all set up.
