Is There A Codec "Manager" Utility?

    Hello Group, and thanks for past help:

    My computer (Sony Vaio) has suddenly stopped allowing capturing from my
    DVcam (Sony D8). After some poking around, I managed to get it to work fine
    with Premiere 6.5 but any other capture program (Vegas, Studio8, VideoWave,
    etc.) either locks up or crashes or simply indicates that the device is
    "offline" (DVgate). It seems that this happened after a customer gave me
    some videos for which I had to install some codecs. I tried doing the WinXP
    restore to a day before the install with no help.
    Does anyone know if there is any kind of utility or program that will allow
    me to see what codecs are installed on my system and give me the ability to
    either "disable" of delete? The reason I ask is that, while I know what
    codecs DO, I don't know how they WORK. Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks, Marty

  2. Do a google search for GSpot Codec Information Appliance and download it

    Do a Google search for VCSwap.
    It will allow you to disable and re-enable codecs. I have to use it to
    disable MainConcept codec if I'm using Premiere because of a conflict.
    However, if I use Avid Xpress I have to re-enable it!
