i discovered this fix just previously to visiting your dojo, but i ran into some codecs that are in fact giving me heavier grief than the drivers
if i go in and select my video codecs, theres a slew of drivers i know i wouldnt even want to touch..the only ones that i want remaining are microsoft video 1, divx, and ffdshow, i was able to determine this by selecting various codecs and running them through my screen recording program. the issue is if i hit remove and then refresh my device list, no matter which codec i remove they reinstate themselves instantly
there are also audio codecs but i cant really do a good side by side comparison of those as i dont have any way to select or configure those codecs from within an audio based program.
