DirectShow in the Windows SDK for Vista

The Windows SDK for Vista fixes some of the issues with the DirectShow samples that I've posted about previously. In particular, the samples were updated for Visual Studio 2005, and now include Visual Studio project files instead of makefiles.

You can download the SDK here:

The latest DirectShow documentation is posted here:

Release notes are posted here:

 Some additional release notes:

- Although DirectShow supports x64, the DirectShow SDK samples do not have x64 build configurations.

- The Async Filter sample is missing the .def file directive. To fix this, go to project settings, Linker / Input / Module Definition File, and add "Filter\asyncflt.def". Also, in the .def file change the LIBRARY statement to "Async.DLL"

    I’m having problems making the Grabber filter to work under Vista (lots of compile errors and problems with grabber.h, most having to do with missing type specifier, but also missing identifiers etc.) using Visual Studio 2005.   Has anyone tried compiling "Grabber" (not the "Sample Grabber") sucessfully?

    Any suggestions as to how to fix this (worked O.K. under Platform SDk for XP)
