  • Please try to use DirectX SDK.

  • Well you have alternatives

    1-) DirectX SDK

    2-) Windows Media Format SDK

    3-) and finally Video For Windows #include <vfw.h>

    From the above you must first read about these libraries and make sure which Library or SDk readily support the Audio and Video Codecs that you will use as input and my second advice make sure which output COdec formats you require and which SDK or Libraray supports you the best.

    For your information I have used Video For Windows before there are numerous articles on CodeProject as well.

    And finally looked at the Windows Media Format specifications and there are very good Windows Media Codecs inside them that you can use for recording or broadcasting purposes.
