More Information

In the last few weeks I altered some pages and I added some more information to my blog:
  • Practice page has been created.
  • The Drivers and Installation pages have been updated and put together.
  • I've tested the recent stk11xx driver with my EasyCAP DC60.
    Read more on the Drivers and Installation page.
  • I found out, that the recent easycapdriver is only capable of 22.75 fps (PAL).
    Read more on the bottom of the Quickstart page.
  • A description of a DIY surveillance installation, provided by a reader of this blog, including EasyCAP related hints for Windows has been published.
  • Some more corrections and updates have been applied, but there is still a lot to be done.

Average more than hundred visitors daily spur me on to make this blog better.

Some people emailed to me, and I like to help if I can.
