So it occurred to me that it might be possible to write a Direct Show filter to do this, real time, during playback... but, having literally no experience with COM programming or Direct X, I had no clue how to do it on my own...

Thus, my query here...

Lets try this from a different tack ...  Is there anyone here who has written Direct X video objects?
There are several examples in the WinSDK, which shows how to implement different kind of filters. Also, search the old board. There was several people who had shown examples for DirectShow applications (e.g. Donkey).
MREAL macros - when you need floating point arithmetic while assembling!

I've seen the SDK samples  :shock:  That's how I knew I was out of my immediate depth.  (Plus with a couple of other projects on the go right now, my own time for such a steep learning curve is somewhat limited.)

Perhaps one of the guys wants the challenge  :biggrin:

maybe you want to pay those guys for translating corresponding c++ code to MASM  $$$ :biggrin:

OK, well.... I have software online here that I'm giving away and there is more still to come...  (Hint, Hint)

Forget I even asked....

It seems that generosity is not returned on this forum.

Tater,
qWord forgot the [irony]tags[/irony]. The only serious financial offer I ever saw on this forum was a sixpack in return for a good idea ;-)

I think the only real problem is that over a long time "challenges" have been abused by many inexperienced people and they have a bad name, even when posed by people who are not inexperienced. I know my own reaction to "challenges" is a cynical one after having seen people for years try and issue challenges so they can con someone else into writing code for them.

I know that is not the problem here in this case but it probably explains why some of the responses are a bit strange.  :biggrin:

Yep, the "please do my homework for me" crowd have definately made a real mess of things.

However; I was very up front on this... It's something I've never done before.  It's something I think is best done in ASM.  I was already giving away software.  One might reasonably expect an answer that either accepts the task or says I don't know how to do this... I was not expecting to hear "Oh that's easy" then next message "I don't know how to do this" from the same person... then the suggestion I should be paying... Ummmm, nope... So much for that game...

Probably not here either, it's pretty specific.

>It's something I think is best done in ASM.
Why?

>I was already giving away software.
Where? Can I get a copy too?

You take a program that can do something (not in realtime).
Decide that it can be done in ASM (quite possible).
So if it's possible in ASM then the realtime idea is also possible.

Post some code and we can see, even if it's that C stuff :lol:

honestly, it sounds like something i would like to learn about, myself
but - for now, i don't have time to add something to my plate

if i had something like this that i wanted to accomplish....
i guess i would research writing filters and codecs and learn how to do it
then, share my findings with other forum members
my guess is - it isn't as difficult as you might think   :P
also - once you get going, you will are likely to find other things you want to do

That's pretty common in forums with more than 1 member: you may get unexpected answers. I guess that's intentional. This place isn't for grandmas.

So your answer to my chastizing people over lack of reciprocity is to express greed?

You may want to give that a little more thought.

In any case the software has now been removed...

Oh nooo, Tater :(

I am soooo curious: What was the software that you wanted (hint hint) to give away so generously for Christmas: a porn enhancer? But no, can't be, you are catholic ("chastizing people"), right?
 :P

I didn't see any links to any software so I don't know what you are accusing me of...reciprocity implies a two-way give and take yes?
