  • You would have to code because no filters are included with the sdk here is scotts webcam filter thread ask him their and beta 2 version is only one to work so far:

    He should answer your question or if your good in c++ try a stab at fixing v1 code or coding the v1 code in v1.5 and see how it works.

  • Yes it displays the rotating progress bar in v1 filter which is the problem with skype in v1 code of kinect filter. By coding I meant you have to download his c++ source code for v1 and fix some of his errors but as you noticed I posted some help from directshow forum to get scott to fix it. Scott hasnt tryed since to fix his code.

    You will get 20,000 views within the first two - three months if you fix scotts code and share with everyone.
