The commits to support that were only added recently (sep. 16 or so)
so you'll either have to wait for a new build or build it yourself
locally from git.  Or I "think" I published a build that included
those here:
that Ramiro had sent me, so it is a "one off" build for prototyping
the dshow stuff but might give you a head start until another build is
