[AG-TECH] Text in VIC window title bar

Can you give me a little more detail about how you rename your video
streams? I tried with no luck on our multi-machine node.


Do you click the thumbnail in the encoding (capture) VIC window or
decoding VIC window? And when I hit return it just switches video feeds.
So when do you hit return?


What video capture cards are you running on FC2? Tried upgrading today
to FC and our Hapauge cards freeze after the first frame is grabbed.
We've tried FC2 and FC3.


Thanks, andy

I have had the same problems - drives me crazy.
Do you have a one machine node or multiple.  Not so bad on a single
machine on Win XP.
You have to hit return in the vic window immediately - if your mouse
moves off of the line you are typing it is too late for it to be saved.
On the multiple machine node with the video capture OS being FC2, I can
even add a second line to get rid of the email address which I would
love to do.  I set this in each of the vic capture windows - the return
rule applies there too.  As soon as I leave the venue that I set it in -
I lose the information.  How I long for a video.cfg file.

I just tested the steps that Tom indicated for renaming the video stream

I changed the stream name to Camera.
