  • Question

  • Is DXVA 2. 0 available for writing a custom MFT? Assume the hardware/GPU supports DXVA.

    I am interested in a hardware accelerated mpeg2 decoder...

    The one comes with Win8 Release Preview (No media center pack installed) can't seems to be used with topoedit...

  • Hello yiyayo2,

    We have not given any guidance on using DXVA 2 from within WinRT.  IDirectXVideoDecoderService is marked for desktop apps only. It certainly is possible to write your MFT based on desktop technologies and register the MFT from the desktop. However you will likely not be able to register your DXVA 2 MFT and have it activate from the context of your Metro style application.

    I wish I had better news for you,
