How to write a VFW codec ?

I wrote a codec for video, it works fine but I use my own file format. I would like to make it compatible with VFW. I have installed le VFW SDK 1.1, there is an exemple (ICsample) but there is no real documentation and the exemple seems to be a 16 bits driver. I would like to write a 32 bits DLL like Indeo.
I look for some *good* documentations on how to write a video codec for VFW, sample code and would like to know how to install the codec.
