I have an EasyCap device which seems to be recognised. I am aiming to transfer domestic recordings from VHS to MP4. I am running Linux Mint 13. The video input seems fine and I can record an MP4 either through VLC or Mencoder but I cannot seem to get any sound to work. Please can anyone help me?
Entering cat /proc/asound/cards gets me the following list:
0 [Controlle ]: USB-Audio - USB 2.0 Video Capture Controlle
Syntek Semiconductor USB 2.0 Video Capture Controlle at usb-0000:00:1d.7-4, hig
1 [Camera ]: USB-Audio - USB Camera
Salix Corp. USB Camera at usb-0000:00:1a.7-5, high speed
2 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
HDA Intel at 0xf9ff8000 irq 46
and my device is listed as:

lsusb gets me:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 05e1:0408 Syntek Semiconductor Co., Ltd STK1160 Video Capture Device
lsusb -v -d 05e1:0408 | grep tSamFreq | sed -e "s,^.* ,,"
Couldn't open device, some information will be missing
Am I doing something wrong?
