Get video stream from a directx application. No hooking necessary


I'm using virtools, which is a framework for quick 3d prototyping ( ). So i don't need to hook into the application or do similar things.

what I want to do is get a video from this directx 9 TL program. Now I have no idea where to start nor in which direction to go. Is there someone who can give me a starting point? Somehow read the graphic cards buffer?



  • the idea is to live stream this data, fraps is therefore not an option and taksi is not stable enough. So i want to get a video stream and live encode this stream, then stream it over internet.

    someone has an idea?

    directx buffer is stored in main memory or graphiccards buffer?
