Windows 10 Anniversary Update completely borks USB webcams. Yay.


Re: Just a thought

I've been struggling to come up with a reasonable situation in which one would do this.

If you're sending video from one webcame to multiple recipients, you're probably using a single program to do it.

Using multiple programs for multiple video sources could make sense (for example, videoconferencing on a webcam while sending security camera footage to archive storage), but that situation is unaffected by this change.

I suppose you might want to split a video source if you want to stream live footage over the internet and record it at the same time, but only if you're using brain-damaged programs that can't do both.
