Vhs Capture - Picture "jumping" On Pal



Hi there


When I capture from my VHS machine (VCR) - with my settings on PAL - B (or any PAL mode), the picture being captured "jumps" and gets "stuck" a bit every few seconds, like a delay of sorts.


At first I thought it may be the video machine, however if I change the settings to NTSC, the picture no longer jumps, and is extremely clear. The problem with using NTSC though, is that it then makes the picture black and white?


PAL then returns it to color, but then i have the "jumping" problem.


What could cause this? How can I stop my picture / video from jumping?


thank you :blink::wacko::unsure::mellow:^_^

Apart from their color systems, PAL has a frame rate or 25 frames per second and 576 visible lines, whereas NTSC runs at 23.976 FPS and 480 lines. It takes very busy audio and video computers in your capture device to convert these rates and resolutions from one to the other.


The EasyCap has different computers in it from the Roxio devices, so needs different drivers to run it, else you can get the stuttering you're seeing.
