Could this be used to connect a camcorder direct to the PC ?:?

Judging by the connectors in the picture, I'd say yes.

The bit near the 'endcap' is actually a cap and this comes off to reveal a usb plug, so your camcorder av lead would plug into the female plugs on the device. It will record anything that will plug into those plugs. Plus it also takes s-video.

I have used this site before and the goods arrived fine, just looking around and saw this

Shock-Your-Friend MP3 Player
It looks lke an mp3 player but the user gets a small electric shock when they try to operate it.

I might get this as the last time I shocked a friend it was by telling him I was sleeping with his girlfriend, this i think might be a better approach.

I purchased one of the Easycap connectors sometime ago from the same place. The 'DV' connector on my camcorder does not work and I now use this to connect my camcorder to either my computer, VCR, TV and DVD recorder. It was a lot cheaper buying one of these than getting my camcorder fixed - was quoted about £75 for the repair. :santa:

How do you add photo's to your comments, i've tried in the past and it just comes up with the link? Good post buy the way they were selling these in Aldi / Netto earlier this year for £19.99.

Hi - I think I need this..........I have a analogue Sony Hi-8 camcorder (with analogue tapes) and would love to get them transfered over to digital/dvd. Same go for my VHS music collection. Is this all I would need? If so, what would be the end result (vob, mpeg, avi, etc?)

Many thanks, and Happy New Year!

Nah, PAL60 is a hybrid of NTSC and PAL, so unless it specifically supports PAL60 (psuedo PAL) it's not going display properly.

My All-in-wonder recently blew so I'm looking for a replacement :p

Note the part where it says NTSC 480p30 and PAL 576p25 only- so no PAL60. Sorry, no sale!

Anyone used this type of adaptor before? If so how much space would one hour of captured footage take up? I'm thinking of connecting this to a b&w security camera with audio and leave it recording overnight as we are having trouble with a neighbour threatening to knock our fence down with his car because he says its 2/3" towards his property (with a bloody dirt track inbetween so not even going on his property!). That way I can check for damage in the morning and if ok delete any footage!
#19
Thanks. Cheap enough to buy to make my life a little easier.

I wonder if it supports vista.

Few points to consider if you are interested in buying this:

- There are some comments at Gadizmo which indicate that this doesn't support 60Hz as one guy there appears to have tried it.
- USB 1.1 apparently does not work due to the bandwidth limitations.
- More in-depth review at Palm Discovery which also provides a couple of links to videos on youtube.

HTH.

Please excuse my ignorance - not very techie - but could this be used to transfer video from my vhs recorder to dvd via the PC? I've been looking for a way to transfer old VHS of when my daughter was young/parties etc onto DVD. Know quality won't be superb but thats not the point with priceless memories - thanks

I am also interested in this and done a quick check for reviews. This site though American gives a reasonably good review and alsolinks to a YouTube video. Hope this helps. I am getting one to transfer my Hi8 video to DVD.

Hey,

Could this be used for example to play consoles via your computer? (e.g. If I plugged this into my laptop and the console into it, is there a way I could use my laptop LCD as a monitor/tv?)

Yes! However, your VHS needs this type of output in order for it to be plugged into the USB adapter:

http://www1.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/3155215/2/istockphoto_3155215_yellow_white_red_audio_video_rca_plugs.jpg

It is most likely the case that your VHS recorder uses a SCART connector, rather than the 3x Red, White, Yellow phono connectors, in which case you'd need one of these:

You can buy it for £1.70 here or for £9.99 here

Hope this helps

Not sure depends on latency, sometimes this sort of device adds a noticable delay.
also someone said it doesn't support pal60

Probably not is a safe answer - can't see anything about chipset used.

I'm just ordering one for that reason michelmas and i'm confident it will work fine. It also comes with software to convert the captured image to a DVD format. Should be simple enough to do.

Anyhoo while I was browsing round the site I came across an SD/MMC card reader for around £1 - can't beat that! By sheer coincidence (or is it fate!!) I've been looking for a card reader today, this looks ideal.

Many thanks to the OP from me for two reasons :thumbsup:

Cheers, have ordered one!
#33
Thanks Bigwig - i'll take the gamble too and go for one - cheers

That card reader looks identical to the ones sold at Poundland. They don't support SDHC. My lappy bluescreens if I use it to read a 16GB SD card.
#35
Just what I've been looking for, to transfer or Hi8 tapes to DVD :-D

A Hot Deal indeed!
#36
My father purchased one of these just before Christmas from Lidl (£20). Between us, we've spent over 15 hours trying to get a decent recording from a VHS tape. It maybe due to use using Vista, but the driver software is really flaky.

Tried using VirtualDub, the supplied "StkATVAp.exe" capture software, VirtualVCR, iuVCR, Winvdrpro, Sony Vegas, Ulead Videostudio. I did manage to get VirtualDub copying a 2 hour tape only to find the audio was out of sync.

Even playing a tape in "real time", the audio is out of sync.

Got a feeling more money should of been spent on a pinnacle dazzle and sell it on ebay after the tapes have been converted - probably only cost £10 this way, rather than spend £13-£20 on something that doesn't work.

Anyway, rant over.

Has anyone compared the quality you get with these with the performance of Canopus units (which go up the Firewire)?
I've heard that the sound and vision can go out of sync on these cheaper units for transfers of 10 mins +.
(Just seen Gazzie's note - question answered!) Canopus aren't cheap but you get what you pay for if you're serious about transfers.

sorry if its a stupid question, but can i play my gamecube console using this?
