So I recently installed chrUbuntu (13.04) on my Acer C7 Chromebook and I have a EasyCap DC60 (Av to USB 2.0) but I have no idea how to make it work with vlc or mplayer etc. I tried a couple drivers but those didn't work because after installing the only one that installed (astro easycap (I tried to email the contact on the readme but the guy who I emailed said he knew nothing about astro easycap)) I had (and still don't) have any idea what to do from there. Any help/response is appreciated.

The EasyCap is a complete rip off. It records no sound and has terrible quality video. Just throw it away, honestly.

No it's really not though. It has crappy video quality alright but when I used it it was pretty good.

Weird. When I had it there was no audio on Composite or S-Video with any software..

Did you change around the options on the video codec? I know it loves to start at PAL, but you have to change it to NTSC, then there's an option in the toolbar thing at the top to record audio too.

the easycap does record audio, but you have to use the audio input regardless of input.

s-video does not record audio but it will mix audio from the red and white connectors

Audio is not really something I care about.
