Easy-Link USB Video Grabber Audio Issue

Postby Parrott65 » Thu Apr 25, 2019 7:25 pm

So, I watched Steve's Youtube videos on how to properly install the Potplayer and the USB Grabber device. I followed it letter by letter and I even selected AAC in the codec. I still can't seem to record audio from my bluray player. I can record the video fine, but the audio doesn't record. Is anyone having this problem and know how to fix it?

Assuming you're on a Windows machine, what are you operating system's Sound settings? Do you have the device set up at your audio input?

Hi Steve:

I'm having this same issue with audio. I'm using the PotPlayer that came with the video grabber. PotPlayer version is 1.7.3334. I completed the install per your YouTube video, BUT AAC is not an "A. Codec" option. This is what I have for that option:

MP3
MP2
Vorbis
Vorbis(FFmpeg)
Direct Stream Copy(DSC)
NONE

The VBOX is set as an input device.

Any ideas on a fix>

Sorry no. This Chinese technology really doesn't offer much documentation. I might try "none", assuming none means no compression or codec rather than no audio. If that doesn't work, I'd try MP3.

If I could rewind, I'd recommend a different capture tool instead the Easy-Link. And I may redo the tutorials at some point and pull the tuts for the Easy-Link. The Diamond VC500 is a much better tool at about the same price.

Sorry I can't offer more help.

Hi Fred, no one knows more about converting VHS to digital than the folks here. Virtualdub is old news and there are much better options

Hi Chuck

I did mean any disrespect to the
Knowledge here at Muvipix which
has been Very Helpful.

I wanted to try some VHS Conversions.

I searched the Forum and Viewed Steve's
Video on the Suspect of VHS Video Conversions.

Could you Please guide me to more info
on the subject and some better options.


Thanks Fred
