View Full Version : Rendering Live Filter Graphs (DirectX)

Do you have a product that can render DirectX filter graphs from live video streams in VB6? Your ICImageControl ocx seems to be dependent on local client devices.

I've been trying to utilize DirectX 9/DirectShow objects to render the filter graphs as described at MSDN:


But it's not working with a live video filter graph - even though my simple filter graph works fine in the DirectX Graph Editor. So this is why I turned to you guys. The filter graph is a saved file with filters for device capture, compression, rendering, etc. You will probably start getting more demand for this type of control.

If anybody has clues on where I can go for an example filter graph that will work with live video in VB6 please respond.

I've never worked with Visual Basic, but I see a possible problem. I use C++ and I need to call an other interface to implement grabbing from a capture device.
In C++ it is the ICaptureGraphBuilder2 interface. This interface allows you to connect a capture device to an other filter.

other possible sollution:
Maybe you can save you FilterGraph in GraphEdit and load it into your application?

good luck
