  1. Hi cats,

    I should wonder if the CLSID: {E2510970-F137-11CE-8B67-00AA00A3F1A6} string that I seen on my dsfmgr is taked by windows, or is fixed becaused taked by internally the qcap.dll

    So CLSID: {E2510970-F137-11CE-8B67-00AA00A3F1A6} is fixed or variable?

    supposing I would replace this filter with another filter, for example the elecard MP4 muxer (that have another clsid): I would like hack the elecard filter so that is take the same CLSID, and call as "AVI MUX" so that when I clic on the AVI mux I see the elecard one and not the qcap.dll/microsoft one. Is possible that? thanks

    A CLSID is a type of GUID, or "Globally Unique" ID# for that particular app or dll/api. It points to THAT and ONLY THAT particular piece of software. You should not be co-opting it.
    Besides the fact that doing so is the equivalent of what malware does, the app may have unique protocols/ports/settings which other apps interact with in only certain ways, and breaking that link could break those other apps.

    Is it possible? - Maybe, maybe not.
    Is it recommended? - No.

    But, somehow I think this warning will be ignored anyway...

    Possible it is, and it will also royally screw the DirectShow environment. Probably it will also screw many other things which apparently have nothing to do with DirectShow. You have been warned.

    P.S.: Are you sure that you are a cat

    I wonder: the string {E2510970-F137-11CE-8B67-00AA00A3F1A6} is writted in the qcap.dll? if yes where is writted?

    I cannot find the string, at least in clear, in the qcap.dll

    so I wonder: is possible that is windows that assign {E2510970-F137-11CE-8B67-00AA00A3F1A6} ?

  6. These values are added to the registry by the installation program, usually you would look in the INF file. That dll being part of Windows the CLSID is already in the registry and it was assigned by MS when they built the OS image.
