I Cannot Get Deinterlacing To Work, The Menu Is Always Grayed Out. How Do I Enable The Deinterlacing Feature?

The deinterlacing menu options are only available if the configuration meets the following requirements:

  • The video capture source feeds an interlaced stream (e.g. a TV tuner or a DV camcorder).
  • If the MPEG-2 option is active, the installed MPEG-2 Video Decoder supports deinterlacing.
  • Video Mixing Renderer or the Enhanced Video Renderer is selected as the video renderer in Capture > Setup menu, Options tab.


I Successfully Installed Amcap In Windows 7 But When I Use It, The Parameters Are Not Saved. How Do I Fix This Issue?

This is a known issue that is due to the fact that the security is tightened in the Program Files folder and user data must be stored in a dedicated folder. This is fixed in version 9.21 and later.

To work around this issue, please either install a newer version or follow the instructions below:

  • In Windows Explorer, open the %ProgramFiles%\Noel Danjou folder (or %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Noel Danjou in 64-bit systems)
  • Right-click the AMCap folder.
  • Click Properties.
  • In AMCap Properties, click the Security tab.
  • Click the Edit… button.
  • In the Group or user names list, click Users (<computer>\Users).
  • In Permissions for Users, tick Write.
  • Click OK twice to validate and close the properties.

Alternatively, you can install the program in a folder of your choice other than a predefined system folder.


I Always Get An Error Or Nothing Happens When I Attempt To Capture A Still. How Can I Get It To Work

There possibly is an issue with a device driver or a 3rd-party filter. You can try the following:

  • Click Capture > Setup menu
  • Click the Still Capture tab
  • Uncheck Capture stills from the device if this option is both enabled and checked. If these conditions are met, this possibly means that the drivers of your camera are faulty, check for an updated version from the manufacturer’s website.
  • If Capture stills from the device are disabled, click the Preview tab.
  • Select another video renderer from the list (e.g. the Enhanced Video Renderer or the Video Mixing Renderer 9). Also, check for an updated version of the drivers of your graphics card from the manufacturer’s website.


What Is The "Capture File"? What File Do I Have To Select?

The capture file is a single working file that is not fragmented and that will be used by the program and the underlying system (DirectShow) to temporarily store the captured video. After every capture, you can save the actual video by using the File > Save Capture Video menu.

By default, the capture file is called capture.avi and is located in the root of your primary hard drive, in other words it usually is c:\capture.avi. This must be a new file, don’t select an existing file otherwise it will be overwritten during the capture or the file allocation.


There Is No Sound At All During The Preview. How Do I Fix This?

First make sure that the right audio device is ticked in the Devices menu.

If a Devices > Capture audio from video source menu is available, click it otherwise click the Options > Audio Capture Filter… menu and follow these steps:

  • Under Pin Line, select the appropriate input (if there are many) then tick Enable
  • Adjust the volume with the Pin Line Input Mix slider
  • Click OK to apply the new settings

Note: you can also adjust the audio properties from the Volume applet (in the notification area, formerly the system tray) Options > Properties menu > Recording option
