Could Not Get It To Work At All
on September 23, 2015
I brought this device because according to my research it would allow higher-quality conversions than say, Elgato Video Capture, although I must say that when set for mpeg4, the Elgato was pretty good (the H264 setting caused a pulsating blockiness, in and out every few seconds, say in tree leaves, for example). But getting back to the Diamond Video Capture, whether I downloaded the driver from the Diamond site or a newer version of the driver from Videoglide, and after numerous times installing and uninstalling and installing again, I could never get it to pick up the VCR signal. In fact it didn't register anything except FaceTime. I didn't use the disk to install the drivers, as it may be outdated and I shouldn't have to since the newer Macs don't have a disk player. When opening Videoglide after downloading and installing it, there was never a place to enter the serial number that was on the sleeve of the software disk included in the package, but the demo version of the latest version should have done something at any rate, which it didn't. I wasted many hours on this and it's going back.
