DirectShow Filter Graphs
Date: 12/1/2006
I'm trying to write a directshow filter graph that will convert a dvd-ms file into a normal AVI with standard compression filters (like XviD and Mp3).

I seems to get all the filters hooked up right but then when I "Run" the graph nothing happens... it just sits there in the running state not doing anything. The CPU is idle and the output file is either 0kb or a few hundred K. Same thing happens in the DX8.1 graphedit application.

As a side issue I can't figure out how to bring up the codec filter's settings dialog.

It seems like you spend a lot of time troubleshooting DirectShow filters. It seems like DirectShow is just some horrible mess. Why bother?

Its the same as trouble shooting email charsets, why bother? Because it means I can make a product better than the next coder.

Every non trivial program has intractable problems that the coder has to overcome.
