I've been working on a Media Player project and have been making some great progress, however one of my main issues at hand is to get the menu displayed. I am using Directx as my player's structure, but I am aware that DirectShow has a lot of things such as this built into it. My main question is.

My simple question is, can you use Directx and DirectShow simultaneously? If yes, do you have any recommendations how to approach displaying a DVD/ISO menu?

Disregard this post. I decided I would just convert over to DirectShow to make it easier. I would delete this post, but it has no option to do so.

Only sad part is, I know nothing about how DirectShow is used. I read over it, but in comparison to what I am used to doing I have zero knowledge. My new question is, where do I even get started with something like this?

Personally ... before you actually digging into DirectSholw ... I suggest that you use API that's already exist such as Windows Media Player, VLC player, and other players. So that you can focus more on your ideas ... instead of reinventing the wheel that's already done.

I will look over VLC player, since I haven't heard of that one before. However, I used all of the others disregarding DirectShow. They were all dead ends in certain regions leading me to try alternatives. It's a tad frustrating really. This is something that should be incredibly simple that's leading to be complicated. :thumbdown:
