Directx filter media association (fourcc type association)

Directx filter media association (fourcc type association)

Directx filter media association (fourcc type association)

(OP)
I have a problem associating a fourcc type in an avi file with my directx filter.

I want to be able to double click an avi using my fourcc code and it play in mediaplayer.

It is my understanding that windows first checks the registry for fourcc type registrations.  for example:

vids.dvsd -> Microsoft dv decoder

(or something like that)

If it cant find the entry, it goes through each filter looking for one that can handle the media.  

Where in the registry is the associations kept?

RE: Directx filter media association (fourcc type association)

Have you tried searching the MSDN docs?  Search for a page in the DirectShow SDK documentation, entitled "Registering a custom file type".

Beyond that, look under the HKCR/AVIFile/Extensions key in the Registry.
