ITIMEMediaElement::author Property

This topic documents a feature of HTML+TIME 2.0, which is obsolete as of Windows Internet Explorer 9.

Gets the name of the media file author.


HRESULT ITIMEMediaElement::get_author(BSTR *auth);


Pointer to a variable of type BSTR that receives the name of the media file author.

Return Value

Returns S_OK if successful, or an error value otherwise.


If the author's name is not available, an empty string ("") is returned.

When the ITIMEMediaElement::author property is used with an Advanced Stream Redirector (ASX) file, it gets the ITIMEMediaElement::author of the current active entry—not the author of the ASX file itself.
