I am embarking on a project to digitize a whole lot of old VHS tapes. I've already done a lot of research and know a little bit about what I'm doing, but I'm definitely no expert.
The problem I'm running in to right now is the video files I'm getting have what sounds like gunfire popping off most of the time. Here's my hardware and capture setup:
JVC HR-S9911U VCR
This svideo and audio output from here look and sound great on my tv.
windows 10 desktop 64-bit
blackmagic intensity pro 4K
I've tried capturing with blackmagic media express, virtualdub
, and sony vegas
(trial). All three exhibit the same problem.
I've trying buying a $10 "easycap" usb capture thing, and it also has the same problem (I was wondering if it was the blackmagic card).
At this point I'm relatively stumped. I would guess it might be the cable but it works fine on the tv itself, so I guess it's something I'm doing wrong on the computer. I've tried changing different capture settings and stuff but nothing is working. Any ideas? I am willing to get a different capture solution if necessary, but I'd rather stick with my current hardware if it's salvageable.

Oh, and another important piece of information is this only happens on the home videos. I've tried a couple regular movies and those capture just fine, it's only the home videos that have this problem. And it can't be the videos themselves because it doesn't do it on the tv. Also the actual audio *is* there, its not only the audio pops. But the popping dominates the real audio.
