    Hello, I wrote some of the the WP article on Media Foundation. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media Foundation) Will the Windows 7 Media Foundation features be available on Vista?

    AFAIK, there is no plan to support the new features downlevel. (The only exception is OPM which is already supported in Vista but was released as a public API.)

    Thanks for your interest! For Win7 the main areas to note are:

    – Highlevel playback API

    – Audio/Video Capture

    – Expanded format support

    – Source reader / sink writer provide a different model for processing A/V data.
