[AG-TECH] Video capture help?

2.3 detects vfw drivers available on your machine, using the same code 
that vic does.  It should, therefore, show you the same list of devices 
that vic shows.  The wdm driver you see is a mapper for applications 
that only use vfw drivers; you can map one of your devices through it 
using "Configure on transmit" in vic, and then selecting the device you 
want to use.  Unfortunately, you can't use multiple devices this way 
(unless you 'configure on transmit' each device with every venue switch).

If you have vfw drivers installed, 2.3 will detect and use them fine.  I 
know there are vfw drivers for the Winnov Videum 4400 and the Osprey 
cards, and I've seen those work fine.  I haven't found vfw drivers for 
the Hauppauge cards (or the iTuner Spectra8, for the sake of saying so).
