I read the other posts here, so I installed 64-bit drivers. (Google the names if the link does work or is removed):
32bit DRIVER PACKAGE FOR XP, VISTA AND WINDOWS 7 STK1160 for Philips SAA7113 chipset)
NEW 64bit DRIVER PACKAGE FOR XP, VISTA AND WINDOWS 7 STK1160 ATV BDA for Philips SAA7113 chipset)
- NOTE! This 64bit driver doesn't support s-video
NEW 32 & 64bit DRIVER PACKAGE FOR XP, VISTA AND WIN7 (STK1160 Grabber for Syntek 8113 chipset which is modified from an original Philips SAA7113 chipset by Syntek Semiconductor)
Since I had a 64-bit OS, I tested the last two. The last (newer) one was a bit tricker (failed at first), but worked with a reinstall after reboot. I also used the 64-bit version of USBDeview (google: usbdeview-x64 USBDeview.exe) to cleanly remove the driver (Windows sometimes caches old info after a driver uninstall).
The bundled ULead VideoStudio will work with some tweaking, but not right out of the box. I tried three other free products and got better results. Here is a quick summary:
1. ULead VideoStudio: searched other reviews on this products for some tips. Was able to get video to work, but it didn't produce the best video (Windows Media Format Plug-in, but only up to 320x240) and the audio wasn't clean. The other formats did not work for me. May have been ok for low-res youtube if it wasn't for the audio issues.
2. VLC Media Player: worked somewhat better, and was able to compress in-line, but had horizontal (interlacing?) artifacts. Also cumbersome to use. Uninstalled.
3. Virtual Dub (64-bit at source forge): this worked fine, but unable to use compression codecs (more of a driver limitation with the STK1160 hardware). Was also able to preview audio.
4. Virtual VCR: about the same results as Virtual Dub. Simplest to use, but unable hear audio during preview (but can see audio waveforms). Audio sounded fine in the resulting file.
So as far as capturing (open source/free), Virtual Dub and Virtual VCR worked for me. I stuck w/Virtual VCR b/c of simplicity.
As far as authoring a DVD, I could try to struggle on with ULead VideoStudio, but I was put off by its clumsiness. Antiquated software bundled w/fire-sale priced device, so it wasn't a surprise. Since I have Windows 7, here is what I'm using (Windows Live products, free from Microsoft):
1. Windows Live Movie Maker (for editing, adding titles/effects for videos, conversion). BTW, Movie Maker sees the capture device but crashes, so I still had to use Virtual VCR to capture the original feed.
2. Windows DVD Maker (for final conversion to DVD, DVD menus).
Anyway, wanted to put this info out there in case some of the other tips don't work for you. Not saying what I'm doing is any better, but it worked for me.
If I ever need to capture anything newer/better than old VCR tapes, I'll certainly look elsewhere. But you get what you pay for.
UPDATE: When I finally did get everything connected to the projection system, I found that I had a video delay of nearly one full second, which is not really workable when trying to feed a live shot up onto a screen. It is very disconcerting to hear the sound and then see the lips moving a second later. There may be some instances where the delay would not matter, but if you are trying to do the same thing I was trying to do it may be a lost cause.
