Recent Win10 update: 10bit capture affected

PostSun Jan 21, 2018 12:40 pm

We've been using "Virtualdub" (*) with Blackmagic Decklink cards successfully for years now.

However, since a recent Windows 10 update (done in December 2017) the preview window for capture is not displayed for >8bpc input formats anymore. Used to work flawlessly before.

Since it's not a change in Virtualdub, but the OS:
Does anyone know about any recent Windows system changes that might be causing this?

Thank you very much in advance :)

If your cpu is intel, its because of the meltdown and spectre hardware flaws, the fix is software and can be a loss in performance as high as 30%
