Work pretty well, just as good as units costing twice as much.
The one thing that I had to do was make sure the Easycap was plugged in before booting the computer. Otherwise it would not work properly. Once I learned this, it worked every time.

I know lot's of Mac users will see the" You Tube" video's of this product being used with alternative software that will allow one to use the EasyCap on their Macs.

Buyer beware, I have found out, that the EasyCap is being made by many different manufactures with chips that will not work with the alternative Mac software !

Read the troubleshooting sections of the alternative Mac software for more information .

I would contact the seller before buying this product if you are going to try it on your Mac.

For the Windows user's, great product for the money !

Mine arrived today so i tested it on my computer running Ubuntu 13.04. Out of the box, Ubuntu as well as other major GNU/Linux distrobutions have the drivers to support EasyCap and all other capture devices. But even after firing up VLC, the capture device wouldn't show. So I went in terminal and did $ls usb and the device didn't show up. Thinking that possible the driver was missing, I switched to a Windows computer and the device is said to be malfunctioning, even after installing the crap software that comes with it THAT DOESN'T ACTUALLY CONTAIN THE DRIVER that I would normally NEVER use.

This product is made with inferior burnt bootleg chips. Some people who bought this and it works, good for them. But for those of us that got the rejects, BASH THIS PARTICULAR SELLER'S RE-SOLD PRODUCT FOR SELLING JUNK THAT WAS NEVER TESTED.

Spend a little more money and avoid the hassle.

First of all, the easycap works great but you need to put in the time to make it work. The included software sucks, and to get real good quality I[...]Third party software virtual dub is free and much better than the ULead included crap.

It's definately not a good capture card, but it's SOOOOO cheap and I would say worth the price.

Installed software, plugged in my VHS tape player, and put my old tapes in, but the computer never recognized that it was even attached.

I am very disappointed with this product. This is NOT an EasyCap - it is an EasierCap. The device is not what is pictured and it does not work. I have had it for several weeks and am STILL struggling to get it to work with the software.

I should have taken the other reviewers advice and just paid a little more for one that i knew for certain was an actual EasyCap device. I would not recommend purchasing this unless you want to have fun fighting with it to make it work. This is false advertising and this seller should be embarrassed that they ship a knock off product!

if anyone has any tips for me, they would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

This item says it comes with Ulead Video Studio 8.0 SE DVD software; however, the software I received with mine is some honestech TVR 2.5 garbage. They aren't even comparable softwares because the Ulead Video Studio software I should have received is both a video recorder and editor, as described, whereas the honestech TVR software is only a video recorder (or so it says it is--I tried for HOURS to get it to work with the EasyCAP adapter with no luck at all, and I know what I'm doing on a computer). Very, very disappointed after waiting weeks for delivery to not get what I ordered, then after notifying the seller that the software I received is not correct, they email me the "correct" software which is the same thing I received in the mail--NOT the Ulead software. Very frustrated and disappointed, and I want the Ulead software I purchased or my money back!!

Using this under Windows 7, and it works. The software can be a bit confusing but it works well, once all the right options are selected. The software serial number is printed on the CD itself, rather than on the sleeve or manual, and it asks you for it while installing -- just warning ya so you don't spend five minutes looking through everything else for the number before finally ejecting the CD to check like I did... lol

This product works generally well, after you finish installing the correct drivers that are not even on the install disc. the video quality is average, but i tried to do some tweaking with the settings and got the video quality somewhat better. if you really want HD video go and spend the money on an actual HD recorder.

First off, if you're wondering how long it will take to get this to your door...12 days to KC metro area. Pretty good.

This is a functional product. The CD came with only Windows 7 and Vista drivers, but XP32 was more than happy to install them and function so that's a plus. Capture seems fast enough (although I did sacrifice a precious USB 3.0 plug for it) and I don't have any problem with the audio as others have described. Using this with a Gamecube, it's functional.

Now, the not so good. Video quality blows and you only get 720x480 (30fps) with a crap ton of overscan. Probably 1/4th of the bottom of the capture is just junk. Maybe if you're interested enough to find other/better drivers, it will work with them. This is not what you want for recording or making videos. With the output I'm getting, this is strictly for playing games with MPC or other simple capture software.

Oh, and the stupid USB extension cord included seems to be DOA only providing power. Luckily, I had room to plug this chunky fellow directly into the motherboard port. I'm not interested in finding out how bad this performs on a USB 2.0 plug or, even worse, a USB 2.0 hub.

*edit*
For the sake of sport, I went ahead and attached this to an internal style USB 2.0 hub. It still works well enough, but I should hope so with such poor video quality. It's really embarrassing how bad the S-video looks on this. I've got it coming straight from the Gamecube and it looks like coaxial.

Also, the overscan is actually because it defaults to 720x576. My bad. You can change the resolution to 720x480 to fix it. Still, there are no 60fps interlaced options, so forget about that. What you see is what you get. It does appear to be smart enough to scale the image to proper 4:3, but not smart enough to do it with any sense of quality.

And for anyone wondering, this uses the utv007 (or usbtv007) chipset. So yes, it's a fake EZCap, not that anyone should be surprised. I mean, this is a really good price for what you get, but it's not even ATI VIVO.
