I would recommend re-posting your query to a DirectX/DirectShow group for the specifics on how to perform the timecode reading
regardless of language, since DirectX is just a generic library then techniques can be ported between languages fairly easily.
Since DX9 cannot be called from VB6 you would most likely need to write a small wrapper in C++, the rest of the application can stay
in VB6 but the interface to the library would need to be written in another language. You may find the C++ DLL tutorial on my site
useful as a first step to language interoperability.
One last thing though, when asking on the DX groups specify that you would prefer a DX8 solution if possible which can be called
directly from VB and would make your life easier.
Hope this helps,
