The sample H264 decoder has some artifacting when playing my h264 file. If I use the ffdshow decoder with the quick sync option the video plays correctly. I understand that that decoder was written by an engineer at Intel. Would it be possible to have that decoder software added as a sample. It also has the advantage of being able to output RGB24. Having the source would allow me to add my custom real time video analysis software to it, thereby eliminating a filter. Eventhough I assume that filter overhead is not that substantial, it might allow me to elimiate a frame copy wihich is significant (on the order of 2 msec on a 1920X1080 60P frame). Obviously it would also not require me to try to figure out the cause of break-up in the video with the current sample h264 decoder (casually looking at the frame traces of my video shows no obvious problems) and also save having to add a VPP converter to RGB24.
