Video Control Samples

This topic applies to Windows XP only.

The Video Control is an Active X control available on Windows® XP only. It provides a simplified, Automation-compatible approach for creating analog and digital TV filter graphs. To create digital TV graphs with any of these applications, you must have a Broadcast Driver Architecture (BDA)-compatible ATSC or DVB tuner device and an HDTV-capable MPEG-2 decoder installed on the host system. Analog TV graphs can be created using any DirectShow-compatible TV device. See Using the Video Control for more information.
