I've downloaded codesniper and another tool (forgot which one) to at least be able to list out the codecs. However, neither of them have a delete function that seems to work with Vista. Vista, unlike 2000/XP does not conveniently provide a list via the 'sound, video, game controllers' in device manager. In fact, if you know of a way/where to list them I'd appreciate that too.
- All videos play fine in WMP-11.
- Able to post a thumbnail to my 360 used as a media extender, but get an error saying unable to play the video and I should restart MCE or restart the computer.
- Gspot reports that a codec is broken and that directshow has crashed.
- Tons of video/audio codes, via different tools, list as 'broken' or 'invalid'. Still can't find a tool to actually delete the broken/bad codecs.

Anybody have a inside scoop that can give me a high level view on the relationship between VFW and Directshow codecs? And as a bonus, how this all relates to Media Center?
