Smart Tee Filter

The Smart Tee filter is used in video capture graphs to split the video stream into a preview stream and a capture stream. This is done without any additional data copying. The output pins support whatever media types are supported on the downstream connection.

The Smart Tee filter is useful when a video capture filter does not provide separate pins for capture and preview. The Smart Tee filter delivers preview data only if doing so does not hurt capture performance. It also removes the time stamps from the preview stream. The capture graph builder automatically inserts the Smart Tee filter when needed. For more information, see Combining Video Capture and Preview.

The following illustration shows a typical capture graph that uses the Smart Tee filter.
