Bearly catered for. :)
Video intercept drivers install at the driver level and any driver needs to be installed by an administrator because it works at the kernel level; i.e. at the core of the operating system. In other words, a bad driver will crash your system, not just an application.how come it seems not to need them for application hooks, which, in my addled brain seems a far more serious security hole as you can crash running software.
In-process hooking is still pretty nasty and I'm not convinced it will exist forever. As far as I know, Windows is the only modern OS that allows this sort of thing.
