Registry informationThis update lets a registry key change the behavior of the Usbvideo.sys driver against certain USB camera devices. If the registry key is set for a nonzero value for a specific non-video AVStream device, that device will not be exposed as a video camera to the AVStream API. Therefore, any modern applications that use the typical Windows Runtime MediaCapture API are no longer able to see that specific device.
Note The xxxx placeholders indicate values that are related to a specific camera device.
DWORD Name: SkipCameraEnumeration
Value Data: Any nonzero value
Restart requirementYou do not have to restart the computer after you apply this hotfix.
