|Microsoft DirectX 9.0|
The DMO Wrapper filter enables a Microsoft® DirectShow® application to use a DirectX Media Object (DMO) within a filter graph. The filter wraps the DMO and handles all the details of using the DMO, such as passing data to and from the DMO. Also, the filter aggregates the DMO, so the application can query the filter for any COM interfaces that the DMO exposes.
The current implementation of the DMO Wrapper has the following limitations:
|Filter Interfaces||IBaseFilter, IDMOWrapperFilter, IPersistStream|
|Input Pin Media Types||See Remarks|
|Input Pin Interfaces||IMemInputPin, IPin, IQualityControl|
|Output Pin Media Types||See Remarks|
|Output Pin Interfaces||IAMStreamConfig, IAMVideoCompression, IMediaPosition, IMediaSeeking, IPin, IQualityControl|
|Property Page CLSID||No property page|
|Filter Category||See Remarks|
Pins: For each input stream on the DMO, the filter creates a corresponding input pin. For each output stream, it creates a corresponding output pin. The media types that each pin supports depends on the DMO.
Encoder Interfaces: If the DMO is a video encoder or an audio encoder, the output pin exposes the IAMStreamConfig interface. If the DMO is a video encoder, the output pin also exposes the IAMVideoCompression interface. In both cases, if the DMO supports the interface, the pin delegates to the DMO. Otherwise, the pin provides its own implementation.
Streaming: The filter uses the IMemInputPin interface to handle all streaming. It does not support IAsyncReader connections. The filter calls IMediaObject::ProcessOutput on the DMO only when it receives data from upstream (including end-of-stream notifications). Therefore, it does not support DMOs with zero input streams.
Seeking: All seek requests are passed to the upstream filter, through the first input pin on the DMO Wrapper. For multiple-output DMOs, this means that the upstream filter might receive multiple seek requests when the application seeks the graph.
Merit: DirectShow assigns all DMOs a default merit value of MERIT_NORMAL + 0x800. This value falls between MERIT_NORMAL and MERIT_PREFERRED. Decoder filters generally have a merit value of MERIT_NORMAL. Therefore, the filter graph manager will usually select a DMO decoder over a decoder filter. To override the default merit value, add a registry entry to the DMO's registry key in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID. Include a DWORD value named Merit whose value specifies the merit.
Category: The DMO Wrapper filter does not appear by itself in any category. When it wraps a DMO, it appears in the DirectShow category that corresponds to the DMO's category, under the name of the DMO.
