Return value

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

Remarks

To get a video sample from the allocator, call the IMFVideoSampleAllocator::AllocateSample method. The AllocateSample method removes a sample from the sample pool and returns it to the caller. When a sample is released, it returns to the pool. The GetFreeSampleCount method returns the count of samples that remain in the sample pool.
