3. Question / Answer for issues
Possible happened issues in SDI2USB-BroadCast Video Capture Card
Note: This capture card does not support HDCP, however you may use a bypass HDCP HDMI splitter to bypass.
1. No sound:
Ans: The capture card can be set as select audio>UAC> HD TV CAM
For example using AMCAP software, you click Devices / Microphone and then select (HD-TV Cam), and then please remember
go to PC’s Control Panel to set up the sound / record to HD-TV Cam. An AMCAP software is included in our firmware download
link, http://www.ia-tecs.com/download/USB_BroadCast_Card_Software.rar
2. The Frame rate is only about 12fps, how can I get 30fps?
Ans: If you get 10 Frames per second, your video may locked to display YUV format, you have to force the USB capture to play
MJPEG for 30 fps. There are two method to get 30fps
a.) to choice the mjpeg in uvc stream
b.) if you can not get the mjpeg uvc stream, you can change firmware., please download the firmware using following download
link: http://www.ia-tecs.com/download/USB_BroadCast_Card_Software.rar
to find out the folder of " change firmware tool“, please change the firmware " 1280x720p-mjpg-only.bin"
3. I tried to do testing with Adobe Media Encoder and Debut but the video encoding is jerky, noisy and out of sync
Ans: Because some "Adobe Media Encoder and Debut" software version is already a low-end software, it is not capable to take
720P video. You may either change the firmware to a 640by480-only.bin for using your old version Adobe Media Encoder, or
using a widely used free OBS software (open broadcaster software) for the HD 720P video. Software download site https://obsproject.com/download#mp
We recommend you use the free OBS software, and enjoying the 720P video / audio quality. Please also check following
requirements for OBS setting
4. I set up my SDI camera with the capture card, and plug the video output to an Android phone through an OTG
cable, however there is no light to turn on for the video capture card.
a.) There are many different Android phones in the market, and many phone makers made the micro USB with different pin out
assignment for the voltage out. If the capture card does not power on with your own OTG cable, we would recommend buy an
OTG card similar to our OTG card as shown in our example. Our OTG cable has an additional power input port to power on
the capture card, and supply power to smartphone to prolong the operating time.
b.) .) Please turn on the “CameraFiLive” app software first, and then plug the HDMI video card to smartphone
If you plug the HDMI capture card with the OTG cable to your phone before you turn on CameraFiLive app software, the
software won't be able to detect the capture card so there is no power to turn on the capture card.
5. Why audio does not sync with video?
Ans: It is due to your PC processing priority. Many video software do not offering the sync process. If the software you using
does not have the sync processing function, then it will not sync. For OBS (we recommend free broadcasting software), it
does have the sync process. However, please make sure your PC is not overload with many tasks. OBS does the sync
process when the CPU loading is below 40%.
6. Why the video have flicker?
Ans: For some cases, we found if the video source is 1920x1080i 60 field/ 50 field (interllace) causing video flickering. Please
switch your video source to 1920x1080p or 1280x720p.
7. Why there is no video shown after I plug the camera?
Ans: Some consumer camera does no have live video output. Its output is just for previewing the recorded video file.
For example: Panasonic GF series (GF3, GF6)
8. Why it does not have the video shown on PC when I plug the SONY PS3?
Ans: Some video source outputs have HDCP protection. For example, SONY PS3, BlueRay, Chromecast, etc. In that case
you can add a HDCP disable box in between the video source and the capture card.
9. Hi, the capture card woks for my PC, and other two other Android phones, but it does not work for one of my
Android smartphone. Do you know the reason?
Ans: There are many different brand android phones in the market, and few Android smartphone does not allow you do the
OTG directly. You may have to change the smartphone’s setting to “ Media Transfer Protocol” for the USB connection
