StarTech's website is somewhat ambiguous in that on this product's page it says "Certain StarTech.com video capture cards are compatible with DirectShow and will work with many third-party video capture applications that are compatible with DirectShow." It does not say that this device is NOT one of the compatible ones. It ONLY works with the included capture software. You cannot use this with Skype, OBS, and the like. I bought the USB3HDCAP instead. It costs more and requires USB3, but it is compatible with DirectShow.
