ActiveMovie video capture

I've read ActiveMovie is to replace VfW and MCI.
Can someone send me a reference on how to create a
video capture filter for ActiveMovie using MCIWnd?

Does anyone know the party line on developing new
video capture apps with ActiveMovie?  I have seen
the avicap sample where they use Video for Windows
to create a source stream.  But I have heard that
ActiveMovie is to replace VfW, so how is it to be
done?  Is each hardware manufacturer supposed to
provide a dll containing an ActiveMovie source
filter?

Since the runtime does not have capture, this means
that as of 1.0, ActiveMovie has nothing now for
native capture.  This is fine, what I'd like to
know is the strategy.

Any help is appreciated!  Pointers, links, books or
any other references are fine as answers!

Thanks,
Carrier

You have better to check www.microsoft.com/netshow and the related development kit and application software (which is free for download). Netshow should be related to ActiveMovie.
