The most important features of VCSwap are hot swapping video codecs, scanning codecs for additional FOURCCs, detecting DirectShow filters and enabling/disabling installed codecs.
VCSwap has a clear, tabbed interface, which displays VfW Codecs and DirectShow filters.
By doing a simple double-click on an active codec, you can move it to the Inactive section. The same action needs to be repeated if you want to activate the codec again.
Moreover, users can customize the settings of the codec and adjust compression level, colors, quality and other parameters.
VCSwap has not been updated anymore since 2005
and its last version was 1.5 build 54, which was added Codec FileVersion info, Codec Scanning Log, DirectShow FileVersion Info and SplashScreen.
This tool is dedicated to advanced users, who need to be familiar with video editing.
