Dows anybody know of a resource (book or online) that shows how to make use of an already-existing codec?
From some of the applications I've seen, it looks like you can write a program that works with any Windows compatible codec... I mean there seems to be an interface standard between Windows applications and Windows codecs. Is that true, or do I have to write a custom interface for each codec?
I'm thinking about writing an audio application, and it would be cool I could make it work with MP3, WMA, OGG, etc., without worrying about encoding / decoding the various formats.
Have any of you done anything like this?
I've poked-around on MSDN, and have only found stuff on using the Windows Media Player... Do I need the Media SDK???
Do any of you own this book: Fundamentals of Programming the Microsoft Windows Media Platform?
