I wanted to transfer video from JVC to a 2014 store bought average spec pc running Windows 8.1

A bit of hassle with connection, s-video connection was female on August VGB100 and JVC but luckily enough I had a male composite cable adaptor thingy (see photo).

Once the device was connected to usb port on the pc windows tried and failed to install the drivers. The mini cd contains Drivers a capture/edit program and manuals. I ran the set-up from the disk and everything worked great.

The software bundled (ArcSoft ShowBiz) is used for capturing and producing/saving VHS from the JVC to the pc in AVI file format then edited with windows movie maker.

The device does what it should with the use of an additional cable.

Waste of money and time if you want a decent quality video. USB is far too slow to convert so expect jerky, poor resolution at best.

I’ve had to convert a load of old MiniDV, VHSC and Video 8 formats and ended up trying all sorts. But these are the ones I found worked best after a lot of trial and error (and wasting money).

CONVERTING MiniDV
If you're converting miniDV to a digital format, then you might be better off getting a IEEE 1394 firewire cable for a few quid instead assuming your miniDV camcorder has a firewire output. Most computers have a firewire input and the quality and download speed is far superior. I'm not an expert but I've just done about a dozen miniDV tapes using the IEEE 1394 cable and I'm very pleased with the results!

CONVERTING VHSC
If you're converting from standard video VHSC then you're better off recording it to a DVD and then ripping the DVD itself. Just a tip for those of you with VHSC tapes and no VHSC camcorder. You'll be better off buying a VHSC cassette adapter (around £10-£15) and playing it in a normal VHS player. The adapter is simply a VHS sized cassette with a slot you can put the VHSC into (since the tape width of VHS & VHSC are identical). Then you'll need to connect the VHS player to a DVD recorder to record it. I had an old DVD recorder with built in Hard drive so I've recorded mine directly to the Hard Drive on the DVD Recorder.

CONVERTING Video 8 or Hi 8
Now I'm working on the Video 8 cassettes, but I had to buy a Video 8 camcorder from eBay for around £100. Seems like there's plenty of them for sale since everyone must be doing the same thing! I actually ended up buying a Hi 8 camcorder (which is a more advanced version of Video 8) so I can play video 8 and Hi 8 tapes on it.

I bought this device to transfer material on VHS and S-VHS tapes to MP4 files, using a Linux computer. No drivers are provided for Linux, but several of the chips used in EasyCAP devices have drivers built into the Linux kernel. The problem is that there is rarely any information given on the chip itself, so I took a bit of a chance with the August VGB100, which one reviewer had indicated worked with Linux. In the event, the chip identified itself as a Conexant CX23102, which is supported in Linux, via the cx231xx driver.

I tried to capture the video and audio with VLC and immediately ran into problems:
1. The S-video input gave only a monochrome picture although the composite video (somewhat lower quality) produced colour
2. The picture aspect ratio was roughly square instead of 4:3 and I could find no way to correct this
3. The resulting captured video was noisy (white flecks)

In fairness, the suppliers do not claim support for Linux, so running out of time, I resurrected an elderly Win XP machine and loaded up the drivers and the supplied software - ArcSoft ShowBiz. This was much more successful and did not suffer from any of the above 3 problems. However, despite the manual claiming that the video could be captured in several formats, dependent on the codecs installed, I could find no way of setting the format to anything other than MPEG-2. This plays OK on the likes of VLC, but is not the format I wanted and the file size is quite large at around 35-40MB per min. Transcoding to MP4 with ShowBiz is possible but with no control settings available it results in a file of double the size.

With no other options, I switched to capturing to AVI with VirtualDub, with a view to better quality conversion to MP4 (h.264 codec).

Unless I can find the answer as to why it won't work for me, I am unable to use this product. Nothing against the seller or carrier, all was fine. This could be a manufacturers fault or my own for getting something wrong somewhere.

When it arrived I was confused to find a mini disc. Fortunately the instructions tell you not to use the disc and to download the driver and the software from online instead which I did. I assume the disc is useless for me besides the serial key on it's case. I installed the driver and the software fine and proceeded to plug in the three cables into the USB and play through my Sharp VHS/DVD Player. Am I going wrong so far?

I opened up the software and attempted to capture, following the instructions about the inputs etc. However, nothing was coming through. Eventually we came to the conclusion that a S Video cable was also needed as the August VGB100 did not come with one but had a spare cable socket for one. A trip to B&Q later and I had an S Video cable and was trying to get a picture.

The next problem I had was the Video Standard. The VHS/DVD Player apparently uses PAL but the software asked for PAL_B, PAL_G, PAL_H, PAL_I, PAL_M and PAL_N. I tried all of them, alongside the other types in various combinations with the S Video cable or the 3 colour cables. Still nothing coming through except some static on PAL_M and N for the S Video cable or a blue screen for the 3 colour cables. Anyone know where it's all gone wrong?
