Many USB video capture devices are sold as EasyCAP, but EasyCAP is not a company or brand name.

This name is used for some completly hardware different cheap chinese clones of this USB analogue audio- and videocapturedevice which are vastly sold in onlineshops.

This article describes, how to identify the chipset of the known EasyCAP devices and if they are supported/ working on Linux.

STK1160 EasyCAP

For the stk1160 based EasyCAPs exists another article with further information!

It is assumed that the stk1160 based "EasyCAP DC60" ist the "originally" EasyCAP device. This device is sold in three different varieties (models) and even under different names like: LogiLink, Mumbi, Weltbild, and some more.

Indentify before buying

It is hard to identify the chipset of any EasyCAP device before buying because most onlineshops do not mention in the technical data the chipset of the device.
