"DV Video" capture using StillCap sample
Posted on 2004-04-05
I'm playing around with the StillCap sample in the DX9 SDK. I'm most interested in the capturing feature in that sample application. Unfortunately the captured video in StillCap, is extremely huge. Basically, what I need is this:
1. Capture video to disk using the same interfaces as in the StillCap sample.
2. The video must not be compressed too much (using DivX and similar is NOT acceptable).
I have got a sample file generated with a well-known video editing software. The format is "DV Video Encoder (768x576)".
Thus, I need to tell DX to capture the video stream using the DV Video Encoder. Exactly how would you modify the StillCap sample to accomplish this? Please note that I'm using a DV Camera for this, so the format should be compatible.
Any help is greatly appreciated. A working modification of the StillCap sample (capturing to disk using the DV Video Encoder) will be rewarded at once.
Thanks in advance!
