5m ones are £1.99 delivered and cheaper on Fleabay, doubt there is anyone here able or willing to beat those prices.

Using a 5m cable can cause connection problems with devices that don't have their own power supply but draw their power from the USB cable.

Its going to be for any Easycap, it already will come with a 20cm so shouldn't 5m work good?

Pass, you will have to try it.

The 5m cables use part of the current they carry to boost the data signal, which is why you can run into problems with USB powered devices.

If it does suck too much power you will have to put a powered USB hub at the end of 5m cable and then connect the video digitiser into that.
