convert VARIANT to CSTRING

Hi all,
i have a VARIANT variable which contains a "friendly name" of a
video-codec (direct show).
Does anyone know how to retrieve the friendly name as a string to
display it on the console?

Thanks for any advice!

VARIANT and CSTRING are not built-in types in the C++ language. You need to
ask somewhere where they know what those are. Possibly a microsoft
newsgroup? Or something having to do with "direct show" (such as DirectX?)?

(By the way, did you mean CString? And possibly Variant? Remember, in C++
case is important.)
