Hi All,

I am reading Advanced 2D Game Development by Jonathan Harbour in which you create a 2D game engine in DirectX. One functionality I would like to add to the engine is video playback. for cutscenes and the like. I have looked at DirectDraw but cant really find any articles which are unmanaged c++. I will always be running the code on windows systems and have control on the computer setup/config of computer playing the game. Any help or advice would be hugely appreciated as I am really struggling to find any reference material.

All the best,

Martin

Please consider acquiring a book:
The problem is described there and has a sample code.

[b]Fundamentals of Audio and Video Programming for Games.[/b]
[i]Peter Turcan[/i]
[i]Mike Wasson[/i]
[i]ISBN: 0-7356-1945-X[/i]
[i]Microsoft Press.[/i]

P. S.
This would be a legacy technology.

use DirectShow, it's no longer bundled with the DirectX SDK cause now it's a part of Windows SDK
