    easycap and all other generic china capture sticks do have some real rubbish signal quality, so don't bother and look at ebay or other marketplaces for an secondhand capture card from hauppauge.

    I heard the EasyCap is one of the best cards for gaming; many Zelda and SM64 streamers on Twitch.tv use the EasyCap.

    I myself chose this, which works wonderfully with Windows 7 HP x64 for OoT speedruns.
    The following apps are listed in order of least lag to most lag:
    Debut Video Recorder Portable (0.05s - 0.1s) Suitable for gaming
    ULead Studio (supplied software) / XSplit (0.15s - 0.2s) Suitable for gaming if you know what you need to press in advance (e.g. speedrunning)
    VLC (0.5s - 0.6s) Not suitable for gaming
    Windows Media Center (5s - 10s if it doesn't crash) Not suitable for use

    One thing I'd recommend is running the console to a TV, then the TV's output to your comp. No lag when recording, lossless quality!
