One of my favorite statements was spoken in “theory of information” lecture.
Our elderly professor stated that “ for information to exist, it must be something new, change must be indicated”.
Using this simple definition stating the quality of DirectShow is no longer an information.

The real issue with MS is they just cannot put anything together, mainly because the guy who wrote the first paragraph in this jewel is no longer contracting for them.
I had few “aw s..t” moments with implementing DirectShow, but the worst part is that it is literary scattered in many “SDKs” and for us greenhorns it seldom makes sense.
For example - I ended up rendering the stream and than setting up the display's window.
To me it should be the other way around, but I have not tried that or been successful analyzing why it works that way. And I just hate “it works, but I have no clue why” feelings.
One does not learn much this way , using this “just copy it any pray” approach.
And the other “gripe” - why do so many so called experts write software without using the function / method or whatever COM calls it (!) return values?
Anyway, ISamplerGrabber – here I come.
