[FFmpeg-devel] Dshow Crossbar support

Can anyone elaborate on why direct show devices that use crossbar are not
supported by FFmpeg?  Also, what is keeping someone from taking the
crossbar support found in VLC and porting it to FFmpeg, assuming the said
port complied with the FFmpeg code conventions?  The current work around
seems to be to use a second piece of software to translate the device in to
a normal dshow device, but that is not the best solution and is a deal
breaker for me.


Note:  If there is somewhere else this discussion should take place, please
let me know and I will move it over there.
