Re: [vox-tech] protection error in Directshow app



i have ubuntu installed too, it's sharing keyboard and mouse with Windows XP through synergy. Ubuntu can do almost everything for me for sure, but i am now working on a VC++ project; even though i tried my best using standard C++ in the backend, like STL and boost, i still have to use MFC for the frontend, and I use direct show for a module as well, there are alternatives to those too, QT and ffmpeg, for instance, but those are new to me for now. :-(

There are literally thousands & thousands, so many I do not even know
the count, but to answer your question - Not just one AV - Spyware
product finds everything. That is one of the main reason's I love to use linux.
One of the other main reason's is the stability - you start up your computer
and generally speaking it just runs everyday - Day in and day out
without problems.
Have you tried to find an alternate solution to your problem by trying to find
an application that runs under linux? I run Ubuntu, and I like using
VLC media player. This is a very nice app. that plays allot of different
codes. I use it for watching movies playing Flac, Ogg, and MP3 files as well.
