Bug in Google+ Hangouts broadcasting

Post by vicul » Wed Dec 18, 2013 9:47 am

Google Talk Plugin works incorrect with Directshow filters. We met with the problem when on PC were registered several video Directshow filters. In this case the plugin selected the filter, which had less register (CLSID) number. The problem was found by using the last SplitCam version (6.5.1.5) viewtopic.php?f=19&t=4937 , but it is true for all another copies.

How it reproduces.

1. Start SplitCam.
SplitCam has two filters:
-IPCamera with CLSID {1A2C1D86-0A25-4048-88B4-C4EF6FD0B872}
- SplitCam Video Filter with CLSID {C3DE648B-FF20-474F-99E1-C60522200CF5}

2. Run Google+ Hangouts broadcast in Chrome.

3. In Settings select SplitCam Video Filter as Web camera -> no translation !!!

Google Talk Plugin selected IPCamera, because its number was less than for SplitCam Video Filter.

We informed Google about that problem.

Temporary solutions

You can use one of these ways:

1. Use only SplitCam Video Driver
2. You can use SplitCam Video Filter if you unregister IPCamera, for example

- Run console with admin right
- go to SplitCam directory:
cd c:\Program Files\SplitCam\IpCamera
- unregister IPCamera:
regsvr32 /u ipcamera.ax

Notes for the second case

1. For that case IPCamera will be not accessible for you!!!!
2. Don't use it if on your PC was set another software with its own filters
3. You can register IPCamera once again by command:

regsvr32 ipcamera.ax

This is just an idea. Maybe if there was a "Force Mode" source selector switch within splitcam option. It operates like a force source Lock switch. :idea:
