The EasyCap USB 2.0 is a device that allows you to capture your favourite television shows and record video game footage directly onto your computer. Although it cannot capture HD footage, it still records a crisp image that will not disappoint. The device is extremely functional and simple to set up. With the right instructions and a few minutes time you'll be recording your favourite television shows or video game footage onto your laptop.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Insert the installation disc package with the EasyCap device into your computer. Follow the simple step-by-step installation guide that will automatically start. If it doesn't, click on the "Start" button found in the lower left corner of the desktop and open "My Computer." Double click on the "EasyCap" CD found in the "D:" drive and double click on "Setup.exe" to manually initiate installation.

  2. 2

    Plug the USB end of the EasyCap device into your computer. Plug one end of the three end pronged composite cord into the EasyCap device matching up the red, white and yellow colours.

  3. 3

    Plug the other end of the composite cable into the back of your television.

  4. 4

    Open the EasyCap program installed on your computer. Turn the television on and start the program and video game you would like to record.

  5. 5

    Click the "Start" button in the EasyCap window on the computer when you're ready to record.

Tips and warnings

  • Sometimes EasyCap takes a moment to start recording; start recording a few minutes before the program begins just in case. You can delete any extraneous footage later.
