How can I save a picture in DirectShow?

Hi,I want to save the current picture when the video is playing in DirectShow. Can you help me?

RE: How can I save a picture in DirectShow?

You need to look at the SampleGrabber (ISampleGrabber), there are examples within the DX 8.1, under capture - but they do require an input device (camera, etc).

I have seen some code on the CodeProject (www.codeproject.com) by Markus Axelsson entitled "Extracting bitmaps from movies using DirectShow".  From your requirements it may be what you are looking for!
