It should work fine, but we've never tried it. We're using MSVC 6.0 --
see VP32_build.html. I admit the build is a bit tricky; mainly because
there's lots of optimized code. Make sure to read the notes carefully and
you should be fine.

hmm -- let me clarify. "Bringing it to the world" means developing a
platform-independent bitstream and codec specification for audio and
video. That is the primary goal of Theora; once this is accomplished, it
should be supported on all relevant platforms, of which DirectShow is one.
But writing and maintaining various codecs now, before the specification
is complete, is really putting the cart before the horse. It's fine for
app developers such as yourself to do it, but it is simply not the top
priority for Theora.org. The VFW and QT codecs exist simply because that
is the form that Vp3 was in when On2 handed it over.

Ahh, so it should be a piece of cake for you! 8-]
