Looking for amcap sample RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm looking for the C++ amcap sample, but it doesn't appear to be included in VS 2017 by default. I've selected Windows 10 SDK (10.0.16299.0) for Desktop... and MFC and ATL support, but neither of these include it. How do I get this sample code?

  • Hi,

    Downloading the Sample

    To download the DirectShow SDK samples, install the latest version of the Windows SDK.

    This sample is installed under the following path: [SDK Root]\Samples\Multimedia\DirectShow\Capture\AmCap.

  • Thanks, but this download is version 7.1. The description says: 

    The Windows SDK provides tools, compilers, headers, libraries, code samples, and a new help system that developers can use to create applications that run on Microsoft Windows. You can use the Windows SDK to write applications using the native (Win32/COM) or managed (.NET Framework) programming model. 

    I've already installed Visual Studio 2017 which, I thought, was supposed to already contain  SDKs. There is a path to one at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\SDK", but this is for all purposes empty. The 7.1 SDK contains tools and compilers, specifically compiler version 2010. This seems to be out of date. How do I get the SDK that's up to date for VS 2017?

    Amcap is not in the Windows 10 SDK, only Windows 7 SDK

  • I guess I was looking for something that wasn't there. Thanks to all for your help.
