Deployment of Media Player SDK (Delphi/ActiveX)

To use SDK on a PC without SDK installed you must deploy SDK components.

Automatic (silent) installers (admin rights required)

  • Base package (always required) – Delphi x86 x64 or ActiveX x86 x64
  • FFMPEG package (for file / IP camera source) – x86
  • VLC source package (for file / IP camera source) – x86 or x64

Manual installation (admin rights required)

  1. Install VC++ 2010 SP1 redist x86 x64
  2. Copy MFP DLLs from Redist\Filters to an application folder
  3. Copy and COM-register (using regsvr32.exe or any other way) SDK DirectShow filters: VisioForge_Audio_Effects_4.ax, VisioForge_Dump.ax, VisioForge_RGB2YUV.ax, VisioForge_Video_Effects_Pro.ax, VisioForge_YUV2RGB.ax
  4. Add a folder with filters to the system environment variable PATH if your application exe file in another folder
  • To install FFMPEG: Copy all files from the Redist\FFMPEG folder, and add this folder to the Windows system PATH variable.
  • To install VLC (x86): Copy all files from the Redist\VLC folder, COM-register (using regsvr32.exe or any other way) .ax file, add environment variable VLC_PLUGIN_PATH, specify the value as VLC\plugins folder.

To COM-register all DirectShow filters in some folder you can also put reg_special.exe from SDK redist to the folder with filters and run it with admin rights.
