Line 21 Decoder Filter
This component is available for use in the Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 operating systems. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions.
This Line 21 Decoder filter decodes line 21 data and draws the caption text onto bitmaps.
The input pin connects to any line 21 data provider, typically either a DVD video decoder or the CC Decoder filter. The CC Decoder provides line 21 data from the VBI of an analog television signal. The output pin connects to a secondary pin on the Overlay Mixer or to another video renderer, such as the VMR.
This filter accepts line 21 data in the standard byte-pair format or, for DVD, as a packet for the whole group of pictures (GOP). For every GOP in the DVD video stream, there can be a user data packet that has that particular GOP's header information and line 21 data. The format of the byte pairs is defined in the EIA/CEA-608-B standard; please refer to that standard for more information.
Two versions of this filter are available:
|Line 21 Decoder||CLSID_Line21Decoder|
|Line 21 Decoder 2||CLSID_Line21Decoder2|
The version 1 filter is used on Microsoft® Windows® 95/98/Me and Windows 2000 platforms. The version 2 filter is available in Microsoft Windows XP and later, and is used whenever the Video Mixing Renderer is in the graph.
