Contains an image that is stored as metadata for a media source. This structure is used as the data item for the WM/Picture metadata attribute.
Specifies the type of image. This member is equivalent to the bPictureType member in the WM_PICTURE structure.
Size, in bytes, of the image data.
The WM/Picture attribute is defined in the Windows Media Format SDK. The attribute contains a picture related to the content, such as album art.
To get this attribute from a media source, call IMFMetadata::GetProperty, passing in the constant g_wszWMPicture for the pwszName parameter. The method retrieves a PROPVARIANT that contains a binary array (VT_BLOB). The layout of the array is as follows:
- ASF_FLAT_PICTURE structure.
- Null-terminated wide-character string that contains the MIME type.
- Null-terminated wide-character string that contains a description.
This format differs from the WM_PICTURE structure used in the Windows Media Format SDK. The WM_PICTURE structure contains internal pointers to two strings and the image data. If the structure is copied, these pointers become invalid. The ASF_FLAT_PICTURE structure does not contain internal pointers, so it is safe to copy the structure.
