DirectShow, audio, and a webcam

I'm trying to capture data from a webcam.  The video capture works fine, but no audio is coming through.  The webcam does have audio support, as is evidenced when I enumerate the AudioInputDevices (and with the software that came with the camera).  When I call RenderStream (using a capture pin and an audio media type), I get an HRESULT of 0x80070057.  Do I need to do something special with the capture filter?  Keep in mind that I'm pretty new at DirectShow, so I ~could~ be missing something obvious.

Have you tested your whole multimedia environment using the DirectX diagnostics?  Which version of DirectX installed and Operating System version?

Oh, gee, I forgot I still had this question open.  The issue was a bad codec installed.  The intelligent connect was using this bad codec, so even graphedit was crashing.  After uninstalling the codec, it worked better.  Thanks for taking an interest in my question, though :)

Oh my goodness, was here all alone and no comments, about to add two more links and see your comment, LOL.  That'll teach me to refresh my screen.  

Happy you found the culprit and it was, indeed, a codec issue.

":0)  Oh well, learned something along the way, so a win/win scenario.

Best wishes,
Asta
