We are putting together an e-sports team at college and among the games we play. There's Project M on the Wii and Melee on the GameCube, so we need a CVBS/RCA video capture card to record and upload our gameplay.

So far we have tried with an Encore and a GreenLeaf video capture card without any success. We were unable to find any decent USB/PCI/PCIe capture cards that support this kind of input. What is a good hardware choice for this? It must be compatible with Linux.

I've had good success with the following card on Mac:

Diamond VC500

It has Linux support as well according to the link, but I have not tested it. Here are the specifications:

  • USB 2.0
  • Supports NTSC and PAL
  • Captures Composite RCA or S-Video input
  • 640 x 480 @30FPS NTSC video capture
  • 720 x 576 @25FPS PAL video capture
  • Included Software: Videoglide for Mac OS, EZGrabber for Windows
