FIX: The video render filter cannot use a custom FourCC color format to render video frames in Windows Embedded CE 6.0

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario.

  • You have a Windows Embedded CE 6.0-based image that supports DirectDraw and Windows Media Player.

  • You define a custom four character code (FourCC) code format in DirectDraw.

  • You try to play a file that is encoded by the custom format.

In this scenario, the video render filter cannot use the color format to render video frames. Instead, the filter uses other formats.

Cause

This problem occurs because the public format table was statically referenced by private Graphical Device Interface (GDI) code. Therefore, the changes to the color format table are not reflected in the version that GDI uses. When the video render filter requests a custom format, GDI cannot respond to the request.
