Visual C++ and DirectShow


I am looking to create an application that plays video from a window, pause, restart, or start from a particular position in time.  I intend to use Visual C++, but am new to DirectX SDK.  Is this a good combination? Should I use Visual Basic instead?  If someone can tell me a good ( and simple ) approach, I would greatly appreciate it.


RE: Visual C++ and DirectShow

Yes. That was the wisest choice. You should download the DirectX 8 or 8.1 or 9 SDK from Microsoft. Check the DirectShow section. There are almost everything that you need for media programming. There are a tonns of example program and program fragment also.

Good luck,
