ok, i read the DOCS on how to import a codec... (sorry, shouldve done this first!)
i looked in graphedit, and for display name it says "@device:cm:......."
i uploaded a screenshot to ( ftp.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/incoming/motionpixelsmoviecd/ )
for other people to work on it. still getting the same error tho. it says qcap.dll 
for the filename, so i'm confused right there, because afaik thats the directshow file...

{D76E2820-1563-11CF-AC98-00AA004C0FA9} is the CLSID from the registry
