vidfilt: Fun with video streams


It uses Direct Show to capture video, so you can use any webcam, capture board, or firewire camera that has Windows support. It uses Direct Draw to display the image on the screen quickly.

The saving to AVI feature works on filtered video, and uses Video for Windows so it's possible to save using any codec that you have installed with windows media player (yes, this also means you can save DiVX).

This started as a port of my Metgrab application to Win32, so if you are interested in a similar project for FreeBSD, check it out.
