How to list an MPEG-2 Decoder in Video Decoder Checkup Utility

We have developed an MPEG-2 Decoder (testfilter.ax) and registered it
using regsvr32. When we run the Windows XP Video Decoder Checkup
Utility, this filter is not listed there. What should we do inorder to
list the filter there in the utility.

From our more knowledable MVP friends .......

I imagine it's simply a case of stamping it with the right category. From
the RegisterFilter docs:-

>>>

pclsidCategory

[in] Pointer to the filter category of the filter. If NULL, the default
category is CLSID_ActiveMovieFilters. (See Filter Categories.)

It may also be best to put your question either here

Microsoft.public.programmer.sdk.directx.video

or here

microsoft.public.win32.programmer.directx.video

for more help.

Hello Graham
Thanks a lot for the prompt reply. Our filter falls under the
category of Direct show filters. I will also post the query to the
groups that you have given.
