Windows 10: Webcam + VLC = APC_INDEX_MISMATCH

    I have a webcam as capture device with 32 bit VLC, and every 2 weeks or so when I start the cam/VLC I get APC mismatch. The system restarts, and I try again - usually takes several attempts (ie crashes) before the cam/VLC works. Webcam is USB Logitech C270 and VLC is latest version.

    I use the setup as CCTV - the webcam is pointed at the parking lot outside my block, and I put a small VLC window in the corner of my screen when I'm expecting deliveries.

    Any suggestions on how to solve APC_INDEX_MISMATCH would save me a lot of time with the crashes/restarts.

    My bad - the Windows 10 blue screen is so bland compared to Windows 7's 'in your face' BSOD, that I had forgotten it's still a BSOD. Next time it happens, I'll collect the dump data. Thanks for the reply.

    Edit - here's the file
