Yes, I actually did. But unfortunately also TDM-GCC has no DirectShow
support, it only comes with customized versions of the basic winapi
includes. And combining those with the directshow related includes from
an official Win SDK (like Win SDK v7.1 which I use for the directshow
code) doesn't work, it produces tons of errors...

But thanks for the suggestion!
