    Im guessing you got one of those cheap EasyCAPs that are the knockoffs of the real ones, same as what I got from Deal Extreme?

    Yeah, They're absolute garbage, if that's the one. Your best bet (in any case) would be, rather than using the EasyCAP for audio pickup, get an RCA adapter with l/r audio and plug the wii into the RCA end and the other to your Line In on your computer. Use windows and tell it to listen to the Line In port on your sound block. Gonna get better sound that way.

    Plug the wii audio cables in to one end, and plug the other end in to the line in on the computer.

    You can just find one of those at a dollar store. Just plug the red and white wii cables in to that, then plug the other end in to the microphone jack on your computer. Completely ignore the easy cap for those two wires (audio). All you want to use the easycap for is the yellow one (video), or if you have it, use S-Video, it looks much nicer.

    On your computer, set it up to record the video from the easycap, and the audio from the microphone jack that you plugged the wii in to using the adapter. This should fix the audio static.

    Unless you were talking about the video being staticy, and not the audio, in which case, disregard all of this, you have a different problem.

    Oh god, that sounds awful... Are you sure you are recording the audio through the easycap in that recording? Like not through a mike hooked up to your computer or something?

    That's the easyCRap for you... I had the same problem with mine, because all I wanted to do was display video games on my pc so I could play them without hooking them to a TV. You lucked out with WAY better video than mine did, though.

    I had bad audio when configuring a easycap. The solution that worked for me was to turn down the recording sound somewhere in windows.

    This easycap was bought on amazon. Cant remember which version but it only had chips on one side.

    My easyCap didn't mention what version. Just easyCAP USB 2.0.

    I got my easycrap from Ebay, the sound works fine, but video is aweful, and there is desyncing everywhere. When I have the money I might get one of these: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815100049

    But even something like this would probably be much better than the easycap: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815153015

    I bet not. At least it supports windows 7 x64 by default, which my easycap does not. Even with custom drivers, I am lucky if it works 10% of the time on my computer.

    Also, to further prove my point, this looks much nicer than my easycap:



    EDIT: here is another one for $5 more that has tons of good reviews: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815100112

    Where?

    Anyway, I am not telling you to get that, just comparing it to the easycap. Back to the original problem, getting that cable mentioned earlier should fix your audio problem. Just be glad your easyCAP's video is decent, and not like some of the crappy easyCAPs that I have seen.

    my easycrap had terrible video AND audio.

    I was able to resolve the audio no problem. Using the program DScaler (I think) helped to make the video slightly better by using different filters. But it was still ass.
