codec or splitter, whatever it's called

every time i give it a chance and every time i regret it
literally tried on dozens of computers, old and new, and it never worked
why is LAV the default and not ffdshow?

LAV is default because it is better, faster, more stable, and supports more formats. ffdshow is old and its development has stopped many years ago.

The fact that you get multiple icons on your system tray can mean one of two things:
1) The application that you are using is creating multiple instances of the splitter and audio decoder filters.
2) If the icons disappear when you move your mouse over them, it means that the application isn't destroying the filter graph properly.

When does this problem occur, and with which application?

Tip: If you open the settings of the filters then there is an option to hide the system tray icon

LAV is not used by default for WMV. The decoder from Microsoft is used by default.

When using LAV for decoding WMV video you should also use LAV splitter for WMV. Then it works better.

Slow seeking WMV can be fixed with asfbin.
