AMCAP won't test you apps, but it is a relatively simple test for
DirectShow video capture support.... It allows that single component
of Wine to be tested without worrying about other parts of the app
that might also be broken under Wine. It probably make more sense to
try and get it working first before bothering with more complicated
What might make sense:
Create appdb pages for the applications if they do not exist yet and
add a test result.
Link them to the relevant bug (Possibly 16147, possibly new ones per
app) (Ask for some guidance, possibly in a separate thread, since it
doesn't help much if your bugs are closed directly after being
Occasionally test and update bugs / appdb pages. Add yourself to
CClists for other related bugs. (Posting comments on bugs to try and
speed work up is a bad idea... Voting for the bug might help highlight
There is/was plans to rewrite Wine's DirectShow implementation based
on Gstreamer, which should solve the problem.
