    Will DirectShow applications still be supported in Windows 10?

  • OK, tinkering around a little with older DShow based programs compiled with Visual Studio 2010 and earlier under Windows 10 Technical Preview. Basicly MPEG-1 and WMV videos can be played without problems, MPEG-4 videos will fail at FilgraphManager.RenderFile().

    Tried to recompile the older C# code with Visual Studio 2013/Windows 10 and renew the Interop.QuartzTypeLib.dll reference, but same failure at FilgraphManager.RenderFile() with MPEG-4.

    The same MPEG-4 videos can be played without problems with WPF MediaElement/Visual Studio 2013. Very impressive WPF btw.

    EDIT: OK, solved the problem, forgot to install MPEG4 codec for the 32 bit...

  • Why not install the Windows 10 Technical Preview and see for yourself?

    DirectShow is not supported for Windows Store apps, but remains supported for Win32 desktop apps modulo other application compatibility issues for particular applications.
