    EasyCap w/ Windows 8

    Post by Myztyrio on Sat Jul 06, 2013 4:00 am

    I recently ordered an Easycap, downloaded everything, installed. It appears that there's no suitable Driver for Windows 8 with Easycap. Is this true? If so, will I ever be able to use my Easycap, or is this a lost cause?

    Windows 8 is finicky with a lot things. For instance, on older Intel chips, Windows 8 no longer supports OpenGL. Try to get a copy of Windows 7, that's your best bet to continue using stuff you want to use.

     I'm honestly not even sure how to go about doing that! o:

    Well if you had an old computer with Windows 7, you could always install that one and use that CD-key. Otherwise, there are other alternatives I won't mention here.
