Question

Why Windows 8 Video Smoothing didn't work?

by DevMaster2014 / May 7, 2013 10:05 PM PDT

I Stream a video on Windows Media Server at (5 Frame per second), and play it using an application on Windows 7 and Enable Frame Interpolation, it was played in 25 FPS

But when I do that on Windows 8, it still play in 5 FPS, and Frame Interpolation didn't work.

When I play the video stream in Windows Media Player 11 on windows 7 and enable Video Smoothing, it works and played on 25 FPS, but in Windows Media Player 12 in Windows 8 it didn't work also.

The Codec used in the video is (Windows Media Video 9)

this line of code enables frame interpolation on decoder

hr = pReaderAdvanced2->SetOutputSetting(i, g_wszEnableFrameInterpolation, WMT_TYPE_BOOL, (BYTE*)&checkedIfSmooth, sizeof(BOOL));

it returns (S_OK) on windows 8. but nothing happens.

Can you provide me with a solution please?

Wait for Microsoft to fix it.

Windows 8 is new and as you discovered, not everything works. I'm sure you called MSFT to report this one.

Ahh, it's very limited.

"the SDK only supports playback of Microsoft Smooth Streaming content"

In other words it looks to be less capable than prior implementations.
