DirectShow Editing Service timeline and MPEG-2
Posted on 2003-02-20
Can a DirectShow Editing Services timeline be built using MPEG-2s? I've been trying for a while now without success. Any ideas or, better yet, sample code? None of the DirectX SDK samples use MPEG-2 files. Only Avi and MPEG-1s. (Also, by using GraphEdit, I know that the MPEG-2 Splitter filter is the one used by default if I call RenderFile).
I'm developing for a Win2k system and, yes, I have MPEG-2 decoders loaded. Playing single MPEG-2s are no problem using DirectShow. But I need to play several consecutive files and be able to seek through them as if they were joined. DES seems the best bet to do that without joining the MPEGs ahead of time. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
