So i checked on this link: https://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Easycap and there are various versions of the EasyCAP so what is the most recommended EasyCAP model for recording Wii U gameplay which are according to the link i showed you which are: " Known Easycap devices STK1160 EasyCAP For the stk1160 based EasyCAPs exists another article on this wiki with further information. It is assumed that the stk1160 based "EasyCAP DC60" ist the "originally" EasyCAP device. This device is sold in different varieties (models) and even under different names like: EzCap, LogiLink, Mumbi, Weltbild, and some more. Components Used Syntek STK1160 (USB video bridge) Silan SC8113 or GM7113 (Philips SAA7113 compatible video decoder) AC'97 audio processor (In the 4 inputs model this chip is missing. Audio capturing is done by the STK1160 chips built-in ADC for mono microphone audio recording.) Indentification # lsusb Bus 001 Device 003: ID 05e1:0408 Syntek Semiconductor Co., Ltd STK1160 Video Capture Device Making it work STK1160 based devices are supported (video and audio) under Linux by the easycap kernel module (kernel 2.6.38 and later) and further on by the stk1160 kernel module (kernel 3.7). More information on this wiki: Stk1160 Audio support More information on this wiki: Stk1160#Drivers Empia EasyCAP The Empia EasyCAP is based on the EM2860 chip from Empia. Components Used Empia EM2860 (EM2861 ?) (USB video bridge) Silan SC8113 (Philips SAA7113 compatible video decoder) AC'97 audio processor Indentification # lsusb Bus XXX Device XXX: ID eb1a:2861 eMPIA Technology, Inc. Making it work EM2860 (EM2861) based devices are supported in Linux by the em28xx kernle module. More information on this wiki: Em28xx_devices Audio support The em28xx kernel module should create a Em28xx AudioALSA soundcard which can be used for sound capturing. Somagic EasyCAP The Somagic EasyCAP is based on the SMI-2021 chip from Somagic. It needs a firmware for operation. Components Used Somagic SMI-2021CBE (USB video bridge) SAA7113 compatible video decoder Cirrus Logic 5340-CZZ audio processor Indentification # lsusb Bus XXX Device XXX: ID 1c88:0007 Somagic, Inc. and after loading the firmware # lsusb Bus XXX Device XXX: ID 1c88:003c Somagic, Inc. or Bus XXX Device XXX: ID 1c88:003f Somagic, Inc. Making it work For SMI-2021 based devices exists a proceeding Linux-driver project: easycap-somagic-linux More information on this wiki: Somagic Audio support Audio support is provided by the easycap-somagic-linux driver at an unknown stage. USBTV007 EasyCAP This EasyCAP is based on a single UTV007 labeled chip. This device is sold as "USB video capture QS702" from SHENZHEN FUSHICAI ELECTRONIC CO.,LTD lsusb reports Manufacturer: Fushicai Product: usbtv007 Components Used Single chip: UTV007 A614231.1 1136L1BK Inscriptions on the board: FSC VIDEO DVR Indentification # lsusb Bus XXX Device XXX: ID 1b71:3002 Full lsusb -v Making it work Audio support As of kernel version 3.19-rc1, the usbtv kernel module should create a USB Audio ALSA soundcard which can be used for sound capturing. Kernel modules Kernel 3.19-rc1 and above now include the usbtv kernel module that supports both video and audio. Patch ID: 63ddf68de52efaac40a9287e44266ac30e71dd36 Audio is 48Khz, 2ch, 16bit. Kernels between version 3.13-rc5 and 3.19 support video only. If you are below kernel version 3.19 and want audio support, you can build the module yourself.

Audio is currently not supported on the last Linux kernel. Audio is working with the Windows driver (tested on Windows 2000 with the XP driver not on a virtualized computer with a playstation PSX for the video and audio inputs with the software "honestech HD DVR 2.5"). The Windows driver shipped with the device was for another model.
