I started writing games with DirectX back in the DX8 sdk, and had opening videos and such for all the games. I've been working on learning and coding games with DX10 now though, and in the sdk, they state that DirectShow is no longer distributed with the SDK and shouldn't be used. I was wondering if anyone knows of a good alternative to include for things such as my opening videos and previews(of other games in production).

I believe Microsoft has an alternative in the works, but IIRC it was only for protected data (i.e. DRM!).

You can still get and use the DirectShow SDK though - it's moved to the Windows Platform SDK now. If you download and install the PSDK, it is located in the samples directory and there is also a complete documentation for it too.

Hope that helps!
