Video Capture for custom subtype with Windows Media Foundation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am writing an application using Windows Media Foundation to capture video from a USB (UVC) camera.  The camera has several modes of operation including a raw 16-bit type.  This mode has a unique GUID not included in WMF.  How do I capture, preview and record a stream of this type?  I have a DirectShow application from the camera vendor that appears to create a custom filter.  But, is there something similar in WMF?

  • Hi BAMillikan,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    According to your description, your issue is more related to programming development. Since our forum is discussing about visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor, then I will move this forum to Where is the forum for...? forum to redirect it, then you could go to appropriate forum for better support.

    Thank you for understanding.
