AMCap is a small yet fully functional video capture application compatible with Microsoft DirectShow (formerly ActiveMovie, hence the name). It is based on the sample AMCap source code from the Microsoft DirectX 9 SDK. I added many features that I was requested, including:

Still capture (Ctrl+L) in BMP, JPEG and PNG
Support for compression (Windows Media 9 Series only)
Remember Video Input, Video Standard and Video size from previous session
Full screen mode (ALT+Enter)
Support for multi-monitor (using VMR9)
Caption bar and menu on/off (F11)
Always on top feature (F12)

  • Question: Will AMCap work with Windows 10?

    Yes, AMCap will work on Windows 10 as long as the device you're using is connected and installed properly on your Windows 10 operating system.

    Afterwards, access the following website and download the software to your PC. When installing, makes sure to use Run as Administrator. This will give enough permissions for the software to install properly.

    Here's an image with the software working on Windows 10:

  • Question: I'm trying to run Amcap on a Windows 8.1 Asus A100t Transformer book. When I start capturing, I get "Parameter errors" and sometimes a **Blue Screen** with parameter exceptions not handed on PAC7302.

    You encounter a blue screen error because of the capture driver. It's either not supported, not compatible or bugged. The first thing to try is to re-install the application/driver and watch the behavior. If you encounter the same message, then I recommend you avoid using it on the device because you could create hardware faults which will have an important meaning in time.
