I bought https://www.roxio.com/en/products/easy-vhs-to-dvd/standard/ with the goal of converting VHS tapes to a digital format.
https://superuser.com/questions/234026/video-from-vhs-via-usb-capture-device-on-linux seems to imply that I should be looking for a V4L2 device. (I assume something like /dev/vbio)
$ dmesg | tail [241892.285109] usb 1-9: new high-speed USB device number 5 using xhci_hcd [241892.428076] usb 1-9: New USB device found, idVendor=1b80, idProduct=e31d, bcdDevice= 1.00 [241892.428081] usb 1-9: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=1, SerialNumber=2 [241892.428085] usb 1-9: Product: Roxio Video Capture USB [241892.428088] usb 1-9: SerialNumber: 11111111111111111111 [241892.500539] usbcore: registered new interface driver snd-usb-audio
At this point, I have not gotten what I expected.
https://chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/31672172#31672172 seems to imply this problem has been solved.
What's missing? How do I connect this to VLC?
--- EDIT 1 ---
https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/RoxioEasyVHStoDVD#Making_it_Work implies I need
$ sudo modprobe em28xx
unplug usb, replug usb
$ lsusb Bus 001 Device 007: ID 1b80:e31d Afatech $ dmesg | grep em28xx [246616.297845] usbcore: registered new interface driver em28xx
From https://superuser.com/questions/234026/video-from-vhs-via-usb-capture-device-on-linux, I was expecting dmesg to give me multiple entries, and again, the device.
--- EDIT 2 ---
The audio does seem to work.
