Many thanks for your reply, James.

I didn’t know that it was a software issue. I don’t have admin rights at
the computer in which I would record the screencast. So I adding a
DirectShow device is not a option for me.

I don’t have much Windows knowledge. But I had recorded screencast with
Camstudio before (this seems not to be an option anymore). Is there now
way to use ffmpeg with VFW? Sorry if write nonsense, I’m guessing.

Many thanks for your help,
