MPEG-2 Splitter

Starting in Microsoft® Windows® XP, the MPEG-2 Splitter filter is deprecated. Use the MPEG-2 Demultiplexer instead.

On earlier platforms, use the MPEG-2 Splitter for MPEG-2 program streams delivered in pull mode that contain at least one of the following stream types: MPEG-2 video; MPEG-2 audio; AC3 audio encoded as defined for DVD video; or PCM audio encoded as defined for DVD video. This filter parses the streams, creates an output pin for each stream, and outputs the compressed MPEG audio or video packets to an MPEG-2 decoder filter.

For program and transport streams delivered in push-mode, use the MPEG-2 Demultiplexer, on all platforms.

Note  The MPEG-2 Splitter does not support frame-accurate seeking.
