MFCreateVideoMediaType function

[This API is not supported and may be altered or unavailable in the future. Applications should avoid using the MFVIDEOFORMAT structure, and use media type attributes instead. For more information, see Video Media Types.]

Creates a video media type from an MFVIDEOFORMAT structure.

Syntax


HRESULT MFCreateVideoMediaType(
  _In_   const MFVIDEOFORMAT *pVideoFormat,
  _Out_  IMFVideoMediaType **ppIVideoMediaType
);

Parameters

pVideoFormat [in]

Pointer to an MFVIDEOFORMAT structure that describes the video format.

ppIVideoMediaType [out]

Receives a pointer to the IMFVideoMediaType interface. The caller must release the interface.

Return value

If this function succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

Instead of using the MFVIDEOFORMAT structure to initialize a video media type, you can call MFCreateMediaType and set the media type attributes directly.
