newbie & video port creation

2004-07-16 06:32:19 PM
I have next to no experience of directX
but have been trying to learn quickly.
I am trying to write an app to display a video
feed in a window within my application
... surely not that hard!
Having spoken to manufacturers of video card
apparently i need to write a low level directx
video port to handle the video feed myself
because they havent implemented a framegrabber.
could someone PLEASE help me with some sample code
for this task. I have been playing around with
IDDVideoPortContainer->CreateVideoPort style commands
but am so far out of my depth i cant get anywhere.
The camera in question is 537x597 pixels
ANY thoughts.. ANYONE!
