People keep posting in the two old DirectDraw threads, here and here, so I figured I'd make a new one to answer one of the questions.
Original post by dwmitch Pardon my ignorance, as I'm new to the DX API, but isn't direct draw reauired for things such as full motoin video?
Since DirectX 9, or maybe 8, I'm quite sure that DirectShow uses only Direct3D to do video stuff. Maybe that only applies to the VMR9, I can't remember, but I do know that they're trying to get away from DirectDraw completely.
