Bought this to convert vhs and hi8 tape to digital. I liked this because it had a descent pigtail length to the serial cord. All the software installed well, was pretty clear instructions but I couldn't get it to work.

I tried it on the s-video terminal and composite video connections but neither worked. And by the way if you want to go to from camera to their cords you neeed to get a cord with a male-to-male connection so you can plug it into your camera/tape player and their adapter.

With composite video, I did get sound but no video ( yes, the connectors were on the right color ). It didn't make sense, the controls said it was taping through s-video but when I checked the set-up configuration it said it was taping from composite video.

It could be a software compatability problem with my computer or something but I couldn't get mine to work.

I wanted to stream video from a video camera into my laptop and then out onto the net. This adaptor made my video camera look like a USB webcam to the software I was using. Simple setup, except that the software had to be udpated on the web, which was easy enough. Recommend.

Although a convenient accessory, the installation process of the driver and application is tedious. This is a very inexpensive way to introduce composite video to your PC/Laptop but I found the video quality is extremely poor and pixilated combined with the video stream freezing for 1 second for every 5 seconds of live video. I would recommend against this product if video quality is a concen and go for something for a little more money that delivers higher quality video.

I purchased this cable as a means to view what my on-board video camera is seeing. We use small cameras to capture video in fire trucks and ambulances as they drive to an emergency, and with this cable, we are now able to use their Toughbook laptop as a monitor. We really like the choice of viewing window sizes the software features. Installed on three different computers, using Windows XP and VISTA without a problem. Will be placing more orders for more vehicles. It is just what my clients were asking for! [...]

I would not recommend because it does not work. I ran everything that it asked me to and never had any success after a few hours of trying so I sent it back, so i would save yourself the time and not buy it in the first place if you are trying to capture video or audio with it, for editing purposes.

This product solved a problem for a small college science lab; we had upgraded digital cameras for a number of microscopes but had an older digital camera with only S-video output which we still wanted to use (it had previously connected to the computer through an expensive video capture board which was lost when the computer was upgraded). This product took less than 10 minutes to install and worked perfectly the very first time. The software is easy to use and the image quality is excellent.

Apparently I needed to purchase another product. I was not pleased upon discovering this, apparently there is another product with an additional audio input on the USB device. More clarity of what this product does would be great before wasting $ and TIME trying to figure it out.
