I have been using the lowest level model of the Epiphan VGA2USB Frame Grabber to capture a video stream over vga.
It is an okay piece of hardware. It is just very expensive for what it is and there does not seem to be any other options.
Here is my problem:
I typically capture slide presentations in 1024 x 768, so it should default to 10 fps, using the Epiphan capture tool software that came with it. I would think that the video should be pretty seamless at 10 fps, but it is not. There seems to be a lot of horizontal lines for about two seconds after every slide change.
Here is what I am thinking it might be:
- The capture tool software that came with it is junk. I notice now that they have a new suggestions section. Perhaps any verification on these would be sufficient.
- The cheapest model of the frame grabber is not that good, and if I want to eliminate this problem I need to get one of the better models.
Here's how you can help:
- Verify that it is the capture tool and suggest a different software to use.
- Verify that it is the frame grabber itself and suggest options.
