Mac OS 10.9 users must use VideoGlide version 1.5.4 or
later to avoid kernel extension warnings when plugging USB devices in. Audio
support for older devices such as the DVC-100 has been permanantly disabled
in Mac OS 10.9. Newer devices will continue to function. Look for your USB
device in the Sound Settings... "Source" panel to determine if it is supported
Mac OS 10.8 users. If you plan to install the VideoGlide or
USBVision software, you must use version 1.5 or later. Version 1.5 includes
the authentication necessary to install software on Mac OS 10.8. Use the download buttons
on the right to get the latest software.
Users of newer Mac hardware running Mac OS 10.7 or higher may
lose the ability to use the audio inputs on some older capture devices, notably the
Dazzle DVC-100. Although it may appear to work, captured files will be corrupt. The only
solution right now is to capture audio through the Mac's line in port. An
will be required to convert the audio source to the appropriate connector. Once the
line in port has been connected, set the Source in the Sound Settings... dialog
to "Line In".
EchoFX sells Mac OS X software drivers for USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 video capture devices.
If you have one of the many devices we support, installing "USBVision" for USB 1.1
devices or "VideoGlide" for USB 2.0 devices, will allow you to preview and capture
video using the device.
If you have a device and are not sure whether it will work,
install the appropriate software, plug in the device, and launch the capture application.
If your device is supported, a registration dialog will appear. You can use the "Demonstration"
mode to test the software.
