Since Windows OpenCV is based on Windows capAVI one would expect that there is some level of knowledge about it with OpenCV users. I have a different experience - most OpenCV "programmers" are on very high level - looking for "how to detect a license plate" using one line of code! OK I am stretching it a little , but please - is there someone who knows how capPreview actually works, as an example? Like to hear from you.

capAvi is 20 years old already! man! that's plain old vfw.

Theo watson's directshow wrappers(VideoInput.lib) even started in 1995.

and you're right about average opencv users, they're much more interested in algorithms, than in (proprietary) video driver implementations.

(ignore my little rant here, since it seems, you're following the vfw code there), i can't take it back
