Long Gone DS Cameras Still in Camera List

Post by Harmonious » Mon Mar 12, 2018 6:50 pm

Hi Robin,

Not a serious bug, but the camera menu of the last several versions of SC shows two direct show cameras, "ManyCam Video Source" and "LN300" that haven't been around for some time. ManyCam is gone and th e LN300 is also long gone. There is also a Capture profile, "LN-300 Luna (WDM 2861 Capture)" that I would like to expunge. Is there a file or registry entry that I can edit to remove these relics, or an instruction that I failed to read? I am presently using the latest version of 3.1.

Hi David,

the cameras are still there because the DirectShow drivers are still registered for Windows. Some WDM drivers only show up when the camera is connected, but others show up all the time and it sounds like yours are in the latter category.

You should be able to delete the capture profile by using the capture profile management functionality - press the 'Manage' button on the capture profile load/save control.
