Enumeration of DirectShow Capture Capabilities (Video and Audio)

The tool appears to be unmentioned here, and this is to fix the problem.

DirectShowCaptureCapabilities application enumerates video and audio capture devices and lists their typical DirectShow properties, specifically:

  • Moniker names (including USB identification)
  • Pins and property pages
  • Supported interfaces
  • Formats and capabilities available through IAMStreamConfig interface
  • Video and audio devices

The utility allows to save output and post it over Internet, what some users already did and here is capabilities of some hardware.

Some of the files might be useful to provide sample data for AM_MEDIA_TYPE structures for typical YUY2, UYVY, MJPG, H264 formats.
