It's support for video hardware. If you needed it you would know. You can search for past posts explaining what it is on DUC.

Owners of particular video hardware, which most of us don't use, would need it. You can safely leave it as it's not likely to cause issues or eat resources.

Thank you!

Searching this forum is pointless. It yields nothing but a list of every single thread containing the phrase in the search field. E.g. try searching for “DX driver” and finding a post in the first hundred results that explains what it is.

google...

DX Driver site:duc.avid.com

First search result answers your question.

DUC built in search is next to useless. (sorry, I normally try to say that with any "try search" comments, forgot it in this case).

It was easy enough to just answer your question right here.

And I did.

And if folks know to use Google search here they could answer many questions themselves without needing to wait. If it was up to me I'd stick a "Search with Google" label up top of the forum and try to hide the near useless forum search.

And now, even someone using the forum search might get the answer in seconds, when this thread comes up!

Darryl, I've been using Google 20+ years and didn't know that command. Very helpful and I really appreciate it.
