Value Description
S_OKThe method succeeded.



The following table describes the graph creation flags.

WMPGC_FLAGS_ALLOW_PREROLL0x1Windows Media Player will build the filter graph for the next media item before the current media item finishes playing.
WMPGC_FLAGS_SUPPRESS_DIALOGS0x2Windows Media Player will not display warning dialog boxes when errors occur.
WMPGC_FLAGS_IGNORE_AV_SYNC0x4 Windows Media Player will not require audio and video to be synchronized when playing Windows Media-based content (.asf, .wma, or .wmv). Windows Media Player will attempt to play every frame of video. This occurs even when video data is arriving more slowly than audio data.
Note  This flag is supported only in Windows Media Player 10 or 11 running on Microsoft Windows XP.
WMPGC_FLAGS_DISABLE_PLUGINS0x8Disables all plug-ins for the current instance of the Windows Media Player control. This includes plug-ins native to Windows Media Player. For example, visualizations will not work when this flag is set.
WMPGC_FLAGS_USE_CUSTOM_GRAPH0x10Windows Media Player will use the application-provided DirectShow graph as-is and not attempt to further render the originally requested URL or file. Plug-ins will still be added to the custom graph unless the WMPGC_FLAGS_DISABLE_PLUGINS flag is also set. Set both these flags if you want WMP to use the provided graph without any changes. Requires Windows Media Player 12.


Windows Media Player 10 Mobile: This method is not supported.



Windows Media Player 10 or later
