your best bet is to download direct x 8.0. The direct show component in directX 8.0 writes to direct draw 7 surfaces. This would provide you with the ability to render avi''s and the like to the screen.

You still can use ddraw with directx8, dont be afraid. If your code is well organized it wont be so hard. it toke me 12 hours (of lazy work) to update my coustom ddraw, dxinput (the easier), dsound classes.

heheh, thouse are some classes they made to make things even easier (encapsulating the dxapi functions), it's was funny to see CDisplay and CSurface where very likely the ones I made my self.
