Remarks

Use the IIPDVDec interface to set the decoding resolution to full, half size, quarter size, or one-eighth size.

Interlacing: Earlier versions of the decoder always deinterlace the video. As of DirectX 9.0, the DV Video Decoder can preserve the interlacing. This enables the interlaced video to be deinterlaced by the Video Mixing Renderer (VMR), for improved rendering quality. To use this feature, the downstream filter must support VIDEOINFOHEADER2 formats, indicated by that value Format_VideoInfo2 in the formattype member of the AM_MEDIA_TYPE structure. At full resolution output, the deinterlacing flags (dwInterlace) in the VIDEOINFOHEADER2 structure are set to AMINTERLACE_IsInterlaced | AMINTERLACE_DisplayModeBobOrWeave, indicating interlaced fields. At half resolution or lower, dwInterlace is set to zero, indicating progressive frames.
