This is probably the cheapest and most affordable video capture card I have ever purchased. I have previously used other capture devices but this seems to be the most cost-effective and easy to use. It doesn’t have a brand or model number and it’s labelled as VIDEO CAPTURE (on the instruction manual it has USB 2.0 Capture Card).

VIDEO CAPTURE SOFTWARE TOOLS I USE

Some of the tools I’ve used for the video captures are:

  • Windows Camera (you need to switch the input by pressing the camera button)
  • Filmora 9 Wondershare (has a capture Webcam tool which you can use to capture the video from the Video Capture Card)
  • OBS Open Broadcaster Software is a free open source tool that allows you to have multiple inputs

I plan on testing this card with some streaming services and also record further videos. Overall, the quality of the video is pretty good and I’m impressed with this affordable and cheap Video Capture Card.
