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