DirectShow filters using Media SDK

Hello,

I found this article with samples covering how to implement the Media SDK in a transcode filter. 

https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/media-transcoding-sample-using-microsoft-directshow

My question is why were the DShow filter samples removed/deprecated from the media samples or tutorial samples?  For my application, I'm stuck using DirectShow and those samples did almost exactly what we need.  YUV ==> H264 ==> mux with AAC audio ==> .MP4.   

Is this still a valid solution for me, or would you suggest a different/better approach?

Thanks,  

Doug

Hi Doug,

From the early years, Media SDK is focusing on hardware codec solution to video stream, so both audio and mux support were removed from the release.

I have other article to use FFMpeg to do the same thing if this can be a solution for you.

Hope this helps and sorry for the inconvenience and I would be appreciated if you could give me some feedback about our decision.

Mark
