    Try this, I have given it a caption and made that caption "MediaCar", since I did it before seeing your response.

    I can make it any size/style you like, caption, bordered, offset from x/y...

    The way it works is to create a regular windows window, then it overlays on top of that the DirectShow video render stream, so some of the typical things that you would see are a little different here.

    I haven't tried it with MC because the only system I could find that had a video capture source (otherwise the program wont start) doesnt run MC. If you have problems I can put MC on there and reproduce the trouble you are having, but hoped to not to have to do that.

    If this works for you I'll email the programs author and let him/her know so we aren't breaking anyones license restrictions here.

    The app runs, it just gives a white box instead of showing the source.
    I used media car to launch it and look for *MediaCar*, but Id change that cause thats the program running behind the scenes
    can u give it a title bar and start it @ 700x500 for test purposes?

    I just ran it and it showed both the web cam and the TV capture card correctly, so I know it still works fine. Keep the old program handy to test with that to make sure something else hasn't changed...

    You're welcome.

    What does it mean to be embedded. I think if it started with an offset and was sized properly, it would appear to be embedded. The reason this has trouble is the same as DVD playback. The way these things work is not the usual way. If Coyotee were around we could work this out together.

    Typically in Windows, when a window gets drawn, a device context is used to 'paint' with.

    However, DirectShow, as the name imples does something else. It says to the hardware accelerator, render the video stream to the graphics card at this offset and this size. Windows then takes a back seat to the whole process of managing painting of this 'window' - to Windows it more like a hole in the screen from this point.

    I've put MC on that machine now and will give it a try later if you want. I should probably write some code for my boss for a few minutes now unless you can convince her that this is more important
