Simulate video capture filter in Skype RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello smart list,

    I wrote a video capture filter that grabs screen shot. It's been working properly in my other app and GraphEditor. But when I try to use it in Skype, Skype says "Skype did not find preferred video source. Webcam could be in use by another application".

    From what I understand, applications like Skype just enumerates the video capture filter under "Video Capture Category" and connect to it. I put some debug code in my filter and I found Skype only queries couple interfaces from my filter and the then deconstructor of my filter is called.

    I guess some one here must have the experience of developing simulated video capture filter. Could you give me some leads? BTW, I have posted it in Skype forum and has got no response.

    Thanks in advance.

    that does what you want. Just move your image code into it.
