Capture Manager Video Renderer - new solution for playing and rendering video from mp4 file on Windows OS
Capture Manager Video Renderer allows you include into your software solutions easy supporting of playing and rendering mp4 file in Windows OS by Microsoft Media Foundation.
Microsoft Media Foundation is new technology of Microsoft which was introduced since Windows Vista, but only since Windows 7 it has got supporting of interfaces for capturing video and audio from web cameras.
Reason to use this SDK
For long time the main technology of capturing video and audio on Windows OS was DirectShow. I wrote many applications which included working with web cameras via DirectShow, but since programming on Windows 8 I found unpleasant fact - old code which worked well on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 had started work with some problems on Windows 8. After some researching I found that Microsoft had introduced Media Foundation and had limited working of DirectShow with the new generation of web cameras. I spent much time on researching of that new thechnology and wrote two simple libraries for capturing live video from web cameras by Microsoft Media Foundation: Capturing Video from Web-camera on Windows 7 and 8 by using Media Foundation and Capturing Live-video from Web-camera on Windows 7 and Windows 8. However, Microsoft Media Foundation is more powerful and allows to build complex solutions for viewing, recording, broadcasting live video and audio from web cameras, but it is difficult technology for understanding of it. I have decided to write simple SDK which can hide the main difficult parts of Microsoft Media Foundation and can present only the most interesting aspects of that technology. Freeware version of this SDK is presented by link Capture Manager SDK.
