How to embed video in RenderTarget winforms in SharpDX


Forgive me. I'm just staring down the rabbit hole of DX. I'm using and SharpDX (hobby coder). I've managed to get a RenderTarget up and running and getting images rendered to it (extra class to one below). However, I'm totally stumped on how to embed videos onto the render target. My eventual aim is for a single window to display a mixture of images/text/videos via a layout editor.

The code below is scrappy, but should show how I've constructed the render target (successfully) but also how I've tried to incorporate the sharpdx repo demo here (which if I use as a standalone class, works).

It throws an exception in the render loop at:

mediaEngine.TransferVideoFrame(vidsurface, Nothing, New SharpDX.Rectangle(0, 0, 400, 300), Nothing)


  Message=HRESULT: [0x80004002], Module: [General], ApiCode: [E_NOINTERFACE/No such interface supported], Message: No such interface supported

   at SharpDX.Result.CheckError()

(However, the sound plays for a bit!). Code:

Sadly, poor documentation and no SharpDX forums! :( Any Help appreciated.
