I have technical doubt and after a lot of trying I am not able to get a solution. I have a requirement of making a mpeg player of a better resolution than the existing Windows Media player.
I have seen the MCI offered my the WIN32 SDK but I had a doubt if I it is possible to make a media player better then windows who made the SDK. I mean better in resolution and occupying full screen.
It is not that I have to use the Win32 , any suggestions are most welcome. I searched on directly accessing the Video Ram by using the DirectDraw API but wanted to confirm if it can be better than the existing technology of windows? Is it that the mpeg decoder they wrote is of a better quality?
eg XING media player has a better quality than the Windows media player? How do they do it? Do they use the SDK?
