AviCompressor Compressor = null; //Set MJPEG Compressor as codec. foreach( AviCompressor codec in AviCompressor.AviCompressors ) { if( codec.Name == "MJPEG Compressor" ) { Compressor = codec; break; } } // Show the property page to set some values. Compressor.ShowPropertyPage(); // Now save these values in a string. String CompressorData = Compressor.CompressorDataString; // Show the dialog again and change the settings. Compressor.ShowPropertyPage(); // Restore the settings from the string. Compressor.CompressorDataString = CompressorData; // Validate the restored settings. Compressor.ShowPropertyPage();
