Windows 7: BSOD when Open Broadcast Software Hangs if Webcam plugged in to USB

BSOD when Open Broadcast Software Hangs if Webcam plugged in to USB


I have been using Open Broadcasting Software to stream to Twitch which has worked fine. The issue I have is when I plug in a Logitech C920 camera and try to stream or run preview using the OBS software it will hang and I will receive a BSOD and dump. The camera seems to work ok when using Skype but does not play nice with this software. Anyone with information about this issue would be greatly appreciated. I have uploaded a DM log collector file.

Thanks again.

Webcam Software
Hey all! I just got a new Dell laptop. Before I ever even booted it up, I wiped and did a clean install of Win7. This computer has a built in webcam. The webcame works just fine on, say, SKYPE or Facebook so it's obvious that I don't need the drivers (I'm sure Windows installed those upon...
Webcam software
My new 64bit 7 HP laptop came with a webcam. I haven't used one before and apparently I need some software to make it work. Are there any good free ones that I could try before I decide whether it will be something that I really will use? Suggestions appreciated.
