IEnumMediaTypes Interface (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

This interface enumerates the preferred formats for a pin.

When to Implement

This interface must be implemented and made available by the IPin::EnumMediaTypes method. The CBasePin::EnumMediaTypes member function automatically does this in the DirectShow class library and uses the CEnumMediaTypes class to create the enumerator object.

When to Use

This interface is normally used by a connecting pin to determine the media type when negotiating a connection.

It can also be passed through to other pins, either upstream or downstream of the filter, when intervening filters do not have a list of preferred media types.

For example, a transform-inplace filter might pass the IEnumMediaTypes interface of a downstream input pin to the connecting output pin of the upstream filter, instead of providing its own IEnumMediaTypes interface.

Methods in Vtable Order

The following table shows the methods that appear in the Vtable beneath the standard COM methods inherited from IUnknown.
