Programming Digital Media

While everyone else is thinking about RSS Profiles (which I will be updating WSS RSS to support), I’m thinking about digital media. Not very XML-esque of me, I know, but the more I read of Sean’s blog, the more interested I get. I’m still working on my Media Center Edition PC. (a few weeks ago I posted a link to an article on programming the MCE remote). I just ordered Programming Microsoft DirectShow for Digital Video and Television – looks cool. I just started reading about the DirectShow Editing Services and I want to read “Creating Custom Effects and Transitions in Windows Movie Maker“. Of course, DirectShow is the only part of DirectX 9 that isn’t programmable via Managed DirectX, which means either a) use C++ or b) write lots of P/Invokes.
