Post subject:  Can't find a Codec that works

I've just installed CamUniversal and am having no luck at all setting it up..

I have been using a freeware program (Dorgem) with no problems in setup or use.

I have a Logitech webcam 200 and a 250 at this time. I will be adding several more in the near future on 3 different computers and am frustrated that I can't get these 2 to work on one computer.

No matter what codec (whatever the heck that is) I use (of those on the drop-down list) with which webcam, I get that ". . . filtergraph" message. I download the latest DirectX. Dorgem used WMV (It was the only option.) with no problem.

One would think that setting up a "professional" program like CamUniversal would be easier (more "P&P) than a freebe.

Maybe if someone can help me get past this first step, the rest will be easy. I have been know to make really dumb mistakes in the past, so . . .BTW: I found the help files nebulous referral to codecs less than helpful.

Take Care and Be Well,

I stand corrected - I think.

In Dorgem there's an unidentified drop-down list and the only option is "MicroSoft WDM Image Capture (Win32)" which I assume is the codec. Since that is not an option in CamUniversal's drop-down list, I really don't know.

I've been searching the net for info on codecs and have, at least, learned what they are and that there's about a thousand of them. I found a program called "InstaCodecs" which gives a long list of decoder codecs which showed which ones were enabled. I enabled the rest. But the CamUniversal wedcam config asks for an encoder codec to be selected.

Color me confused :?

I also found "Windows Media Encoder" with utilities in my Programs list. I was able to use it to see the output of my webcams for broadcasting, but I didn't see any way to permanently configure an encoder for a device.

I had deleted Dorgem to ensure it wasn't conflicting and went through the registry today looking for left over settings.

Still waiting for that all needed help. I've paid a lot of money for a program that I can't get to work and this forum seems to be the only support.

it is necessary, that the DirectShow filters are correct installed.

Please look here viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7&p=11#p11

If you have installed the both CrazyPixels DirectShow filters again, then please restart the program
and add the camera without using an additional video codec.
If this works, then you can try addtional video codecs until you find the one you like.

Just running as administrator fixed this problem. Which I don't understand. This is a home computer adn I would think that makes me the administrator by default. :?

What is the best codec to render with in Sony Vegas 9 for YouTube HD video uploads? I've been using the XDCAM EX *.MP4 codec because I can get file sizes that are smaller compared to the WMV V11 codec. The XDCAM codec, however, has only a 35Mbps variable bitrate that can't be adjusted. Is 35Mbps sufficient for 1080p video for YouTube? Can I get better quality with other codecs?
