I have a capture card that can capture s-video from a VHS player. I have the amcap/dscap c++ example programmes that write to avi, but only in the codecs that seems to be hardwired into the capture devices exe, which are very lossy. I would like to know how to attach my own avi filter, such as a lossless huffyuv, or better still a mpeg2 filter and a demuxer filter, so that I can write a mpg file or better still a mpv plus mpa. From lossless avi I can always use tmpgenc, but better is to do all the mpegging in the c++ code. I am having problems even enumerating the video codecs, let alone connecting them to the filter graph.

use grapheditor to enumerate the MPEG2 codecs on your system and see which ones connect in and work

it can be found in wherever you installed DXSDK under "Bin\DXUtilsGraphEdt.exe"
