Formally - you are probably right, on the other hand the return value has been
documented, so it can't be stolen. Or it is already stolen by testing it.
I will do the following: put my considerations on filtergraph.c code on a single
document and submit it here or to the mailing list. The point is that not only
obvious changes like releasing an interface pointer before the function returns
might be possible .
That's why I was looking for the maintainer - to be able to discuss the things
that are not obvious (for me as well). It would be nice to be able to write some
code and say "here is the exact (or better) implementation of the DirectShow",
unfortunately it is not realistic (for me, at least). By the way, I believe the
DirectShow to be quite a murky area, although it is far not new, many people
work with it (often simply changing Microsoft samples according to their needs
and hoping that it will somehow work) and seems even to be at the end of its
development - Media Foundation is to come with Vista and I personally doubt that
DirectShow will be developed further.
