I'm trying to capture some cherished home videos and basically decided to follow this guide that was recommended a bunch from around the net: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdGDwNwmyVo
I got myself an S-VHS player with s-video out, a Panasonic dvd recorder for the TBC, and hooked them all up to an IO-Data GV-USB (this thing)
which seemed to be a decently reviewed device for the price.
I followed the instructions in the video (starting at about the 6:50 mark) to the letter, and this is where things get weird.
I only get the video preview when my device is set to "WDM Image Capture", not when I select the GV-USB2 device. However, virtualdub
will ONLY record when it's set to the GV-USB2 device, not when in WDM.
To make matters weirder, I can hear the audio just fine when it's being previewed in virtuadub, but when I record to a file I only get the video, no audio. The GV-USB2 isn't showing up as a recording device in windows 10 for audio but I'm getting the audio just fine in preview mode, so clearly it's coming through, just not translating to the captured video.
In short, I can capture videos on the wrong setting, without a preview, and I can get sound in preview mode, but no sound on the resulting video capture.
I don't get it.
Any idea what might be getting messed up here?
