textfile being mistaken for captions
firstly, thanks for the multi-monitor support on recent versions of camstudio, very useful.
Now, in the latest version, camstudio always saves a textfile with the same file title as the avi, containing "<recorder><version>2.6<\version><release>294<\release><\recorder>". I can't see a way to turn this off.
However, the existance of this textfile causes problems when playing the file with VLC, which seems to assume that a textfile of same name as video will contain caption data.
VLC's error message is of the form "VLC can't recognize the input's format: The format of 'Z:\myvideo.txt' cannot be detected. Have a look at the log for details." (even though the AVI file is fine)
