    I got this video capture card (called "Video Capture DVD Maker").

    [Attachment 58883 - Click to enlarge]


    I thought I could used it on Linux (DeepIn) by just connecting... but I was wrong.
    Can someone know if there is a way to configure there?

    Thank you for any advice.

    P.d. Sorry. My english its not so good...

    p.d. 2.This is the link of the video capture (for any detail): https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Hot-sale-USB-Video-grabber-DVD_472705113.html

  2. What did you try doing exactly? If it's supported it should normally load the driver automatically when plugged in and you can use the qv4l2 application to test it. Whether it is supported or not I have no idea though.

    Go to Linux terminal:

    lsusb

    It will list all connected usb devices if they are recognized and a driver is loaded.

    The device is recognized by linux (I used that command "lsusb"), but neither OBS or VLC recognized it.

    How can I run "qv4l2"?

    Is there a way to configured the video capture on linux (like install a drive on windows)?


    Thank you for any advice.

  5. What name and device ID does it show up as? Showing up in lsusb doesn't mean the driver actually is loaded. In most cases the driver will either be loaded automatically, or the device will lack driers entirely, though there are exceptions with stuff that hasn't been added to the kernel yet.

    To run qv4l2 you need to install the qv4l2 package (assuming deepin uses the same packages as debian), and then you can run the "qv4l2" command in a terminal, or run it from the menus.

    what happens when you connect your camera to the USB device ??
    do you get any picture or sound ? you might try using melt (a console movie grabber) - https://askubuntu.com/questions/793664/video-capture-with-empia-2861-chip-not-working

  8. Hm, it may be using one of the empia all-in-one chips which I don't know whether linux drivers exist for.

    The dmesg command (which displays the kernel log) will show if there is any driver loaded after connecting.

    In this wiki there is information about the chip used in your device
    https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Easycap

    There seems to be no direct driver support according to this page..
