MFCreateTranscodeProfile function

Creates an empty transcode profile object.

The transcode profile stores configuration settings for the output file. These configuration settings are specified by the caller, and include audio and video stream properties, encoder settings, and container settings. To set these properties, the caller must call the appropriate IMFTranscodeProfile methods.

The configured transcode profile is passed to the MFCreateTranscodeTopology function. The underlying topology builder uses these settings to build the transcode topology.

Syntax


HRESULT MFCreateTranscodeProfile(
  _Out_  IMFTranscodeProfile **ppTranscodeProfile
);

Parameters

ppTranscodeProfile [out]

Receives a pointer to the IMFTranscodeProfile interface of the transcode profile object. Caller must release the interface.

Return value

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

Remarks

The MFCreateTranscodeProfile function creates an empty transcode profile. You must configure the transcode profile setting attributes that define the media types and the container properties. Use the following methods to configure the profile:

For example code that uses this function, see the following topics:

Examples

The following example creates a transcode profile for Windows Media Audio (WMA).
