    Hi all,

    First post so I hope I'm in the correct forum!
    I have done a search for this issue, with hundreds and hundreds of results not directly relating, so I thought I'd ask for some advice here as to what capture card and filters would best suit my needs.

    I'll be using directshow and c++ on Windows7 to produce some software to capture video and audio.
    My understanding is that a capture card will deliver the raw captured frames to a filter chain, with a file output at the end of the filter chain, and an optional preview window.

    My project is that I want to capture video and sound from the capture card and create a dvd disc that can be played back in the majority of dvd players (PAL/NTSC - I know they are different formats but I'll have an option to choose)

    My questions are...
    A long shot but are there any filters available that would produce the video_ts/audio_ts respectively at the time of capturing?
    If not then what filters would be recommended to produce a true dvd compliant mpg file without the need for demuxing and remuxing?
    Or... if not via the filter chain, is there a capture card that can produce the necessary files directly to hard disc that I can burn to dvd later?

    Cheers!
    Dave

    I don't know of a card that does this.
    My experience of capture cards are for recording WTV files OTA using Windows Media Center.
    I have a scheduled task set up to use GraphEdit plus filters to convert the WTV to mpeg2 files, then another scheduled task to convert the mpeg2 to XviD avi files.
    I could probably set it up to convert the mpeg2 to DVD compliant files and author them - but I'm not recording for posterity, just to view and toss.

    I suspect that your level of expertise would be better served if you posted at the VideoHelp site.The hotshots who hang out there would be best to consult.
