Grab a video frame in Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been trying to use media foundation to pull frames from a video file on Vista. I found IMFSourceReader is recommented in Media foundation.

    However, it is not available to Vista (at leave not work in SP1 or lower). Is there any way I can get frames with Media foundation?

    Thanks in advance.


    P.S. I know that this interface is available if you upgrade your Vista SP2 with Platform Update Supplement but I wish not to be limited on this.

  • If you can't use the IMFSourceReader interface, you pretty much can't use Media Foundation to get frames from anything. I'm pretty sure it's even used internally by Media Sessions or the Source Resolver.

  • Thanks for your explanation. I guess there is no solution by now.
