Hmm mines probs over 5yrs old, windows xp, and im going to use a 600TVL camera. Might struggle a bit. Linux may be the go. Does easycap work on linux?

Please post your build issues on the other forum and leave this one for FPV. Just my opinion, AGAIN.

Thanks

2. Dell D-630, Dual Core 1.8 GHz, 4 gig RAM, 80 gig HD, Win 7 64bit
For this use a single core processor is better. I don't think any of the capture software makes use of multi-core techknowledgey.
Just turn off all unnecessary programs running in the background.
FPV transmitter signals are 480p so HD doesn't come into it yet, maybe soon.
Also, I am using a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR 950Q and Composite in is also only 480p. I think that the EasyCap is the same.
I've only been doing FPV for a few months but been doing Video Editing for 12+ years.

Mate, seriously. Enough. I will unsubscribe from this thread now due to you. I will come back in a week and hopefully A:you are gone. B: you have learnt to shut up for a bit.

You obviously are inexperienced at building etc as your questions clearly show that but then you profess to have all the solutions coming.

The whole tone of the thread has gone south since you arrived.

Please sell your bixler and then I'll be back.

Mike.
