    Well if it exists at all, it will be at http://msdn.microsoft.com
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    What I want to do is pretty straightforward. I just want to extract the frames from a video file into either BMP or JPG. I am gonna continue to scour the Windows API basic for such functions.
