Hi all,

How to mapper from DirectShow Filter to VFW. Coz i am currently building a virtual webcam by creating a DirectShow Filter. But JMF (Java Media Framwork) need to use VFW Driver, so i want to map my built filter to VFW.

VFW drivers can be accessed from within DirectShow (VWF Capture Filter) but I have never heard about accessing DirectShow video sources from VFW (VFW is definitely older interface).

I have found this about JMF:

The following capture devices are supported in JMF 2.1.1 FCS with the Windows Performance Pack:
Video For Windows (VFW), Windows implementation only.
DirectShow (DS), Windows implementation only.
JavaSound, all implementations.


And also this:

"On the java side dsj tries to keep things open as possible - you may use it standalone or let it feed data into JMF or other APIs."
