The updated USB Video Class (UVC) driver for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 is available


Microsoft has released the updated USB Video Class (UVC) driver for Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2). The updated driver adds the following capabilities:
  • Digital video (DV) data rendering to let you stream DV data from the host computer to the device
  • MPEG2TS capture to let you stream USB Isochronous MPEG2 transport streams from the device to the host computer
The following issue is also fixed by this driver update:
  • You receive a "STOP 0x000000D1" error message in Usbvideo.sys on a Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)-based computer
    On a Windows XP SP2-based computer, you try to operate a USB webcam that is compliant with the USB Video Class and that supports Still Image Capture Method 2. When you do this, you may receive a Stop error message that resembles the following:
    *** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x0000004C, 0x00000002 , 0x00000000, 0xA8E0CD93)

    *** usbvideo.sys – Address A8E0CD93 base at A8E00000
    Note The parameters in this error message may vary, depending on the cause of the Stop error.

    This issue may occur when you use My Computer to open the video steam of a webcam that supports Still Image Capture Method 2 after another application already opened the video stream. For example, AMCap or MSN Messenger already opened the video stream.
