Ezcap283 have 3 input modes: HDMI, component, composite. And it will automatically recognize the input video source, and you can also select it with “SOURCE” button if you connect more than two source at same time.


Connect with HDMI input source:

1, Connect power with DC adaptor


2, Plug an USB disk.


3, Use HDMI cable connect HDMI camera or other source.


4, With HDMI cable connect to monitor


5, The “LINE OUT” is for connect to speaker or earphone, it’s not necessary if you don’t need, cause the HDMI output also with audio output.


6, You can connect your microphone to record your comment when play game, it’s not necessary only if you need it.




Connect with Ypbpr component video source (such as DVD player, PS3. Etc):



1, Use the adapter cable in the package to connect component (red, blue, green), just don’t mixed the red with the audio cable (the audio cable red and white will be separated with component)


2, The other connection will total same as HDMI connection above.


Note: For PS3 connect, you also need to do following settings:

  Go to the settings---Video output settings, choose “Component/D-Terminal”:


 At the resolutions setting, make sure the “1080P” option is NOT be ticked, otherwise some game play (e.g. GT5) cannot be recorded by ezcap283:



Connect with composite video source (such as camera, VHS, V8, Hi8, Etc):


1, Connect the composite (yellow cable and red white audio cable) to your video source with the adapter cable come with the package.


2, The other connections are all same as HDMI input connections above.




After connection is ready (no matter composite, component, or HDMI),you should see the pass through video on the screen. You will see the green power indicator on.


The 720P/1080P quality LED will shows on 1080P default if the input source is 1080P,  means on 1080P file recording, you can press the “720/1080” button to set it to 720P, then the 720P LED shows on, means the recorded file will be 720P. If the input source is under 1080P, then the LED only shows on 720P, and the “720/1080” button will not take effect, means only record 720P or under 720P file (base on input quality). Record quality also can set by remote controller.


The source LED (HDMI/YPbPr/CVBS) will on according the input source (both on for CVBS). Both LED will be flash if there is no video input or the input video with problem. You can press “source”

button or remote controller to set the input source if there is more than two source at same time.


To record video is very simple --- press the record button (or remote controller), then you will see the REC indicator turns on, it means now recording.


Use SNAPSHOT button of remote controller, you can get a still image by one press, but it is only work when NOT recording.


Recording comments during video recording: If you connect a Microphone to MIC port, you can record comments with video, and you can adjust the volume by the switch. 


There are several reasons for no actions when press record button, you may need check:


1, The input video source disconnected.


2, The USB flash is out of memory.


3, The format for USB flash is not suitable, e.g. exFAT. Ezcap283 support FAT, FAT32, and NTFS.


4, The USB flash is not connected well.


5, The USB flash is not ready, normally, it will take 4~8 seconds after plug it on.


To stop recording, just press the button again, will see REC indicator flash few seconds then turns off, means the record is stop, now you can take off your USB flash.

Note: please do not take the memory off when the indicator is flashing. The recording will automatically stop if the USB flash out of space.


After stop recording, connect the USB flash to computer will see the recorded files: for 1080P recording, file will be Encode_1080P_1, for 720 or 480p recording, file will be Encode_1.

Every record/stop operation will create a different recording file: Encode_1080P_1, Encode_1080P_2, Encode_1080P_3… and so on.


The max size per file will be around 1.95GB (around 15 minutes for 1080p video), when you record a video more than 1.95GB(15 minutes), ezcap283 will partition it in more than 1 file, for example: if you record a 45 minutes 1080p video by one click recording, you will see 3 files: Encode_1080P_1, Encode_1080P_1_1, Encode_1080P_1_2…and so on


Sometimes you may find that some recorded video with problems, like: skip. It may caused by you are using a USB flash on NTFS format, and you haven’t click “safety remove” the device when disconnect from computer (especially for USB HDD, if not safety remove, may caused serious problem). You can try to format it to FAT32 if that problem keeps happen.
