  • Yes, DirectShow is still supported in Vista, and if you're looking to write managed code, it's still your best bet, since we don't yet have a managed API for Media Foundation.

  • No, Media Foundation is for Vista only.  To write multimedia applications on XP or earlier OSes, you'll need to use DirectShow.

  • Thanks Becky for your reply. If I use directshow and C#.net to develop a audio- video player then will it support in vista. Actually i want to make a player for vista.
