The BtCap, WDM Video Capture is a component of video capture cards which are associated with the process of video compression and colorspace conversion among others. The image driver is used in the conversion of RGB colorspace signals into the YV12 planar standard which is widely used by majority of video compression utilities in the computer market. The device driver is likewise closely linked with the process of capturing video either at PAL, NTSC, or SECAM standards. These standards are dictated mostly by the location where the computer user is located. The BtCap, WDM Video Capture is also associated with the ability to tap into the framerate capture capability built into the chipsets of the video capture card. Essentially there is a difference between how the video card will process captured video in full framerate as compared with other methods.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Device drivers for video capture cards also have the functionality of adjusting display properties like Gamma, Brightness, Contrast, Hue, and Saturation among others. This feature is very similar to the way that a regular graphics card handles the processing of display properties. For video capture cards supported by the BtCap, WDM Video Capture component, the modification of the display properties are applied mostly to the playback or during the capture of the target video feed. This means that the regular video card settings will take over once the video feed is no longer active. The device driver also has a hand in how the source of the video is handled. Essentially video sources depend on the design of the video capture card based on the input ports present on the hardware component. The video part of the WDM layer is affected by the updating of the video support components of the underlying operating system platform. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and BtCap, WDM Video Capture errors before installing any driver updates.
