VideoStudio: Cannot capture using "device" from within VideoStudio

2 users found this article helpful

When connecting a video capturing hardware dongle, to port your analogue video into digital, you may be faced with the likelihood, that your device is not:

  1. Detected
  2. Missing Video
  3. Missing Audio
  4. Gives error when trying to capture

This is because 99% of all hardware capture dongles are now proprietary to the software which they are bundled with. Each device comes with a packaged piece of software, with the intention to be used with this device. If your capture dongle has a software companion, it will need to be utilized, to perform the capture. Once the capture is complete, you can then import the video file into VideoStudio, to perform your editing.
