Hello,

I was exploring the possibility of creating a multi threaded screencapture program, that exports the onscreen content to an avi file in real time. I have looked around the MSDN help areas and cannot seem to find the information I need, such as how to capture the screen's image and put that into video format or capture the audio from either the stereo output, or mic. From the information I did find I am guessing that I will need to employ the threading and AVIfile classes. Any help would be great, thanks.

you need to some how capture it to a video format - how is this done no idea, probably using the DirectX approach. To capture screen shots to an image file, take a look at this:
