I had this same problem.  Never did get it to work... now I use 
nuvexport, which relies on mythtranscode's raw A/V export-to-FIFO 
ability (kind of like a frameserver).  Works like a charm.

What version of Windows, and what codec?  IIRC, the DS filters can't 
handle RTjpeg on Win9x/ME; don't know about MPEG-4.
