VideoProcessorSetStreamAutoProcessingMode function

Enables or disables automatic processing features for an input stream on the video processor.


VOID APIENTRY* VideoProcessorSetStreamAutoProcessingMode(
  _In_ D3D10DDI_HDEVICE           hDevice,
  _In_ D3D11_1DDI_HVIDEOPROCESSOR hVideoProcessor,
  _In_ UINT                       StreamIndex,
  _In_ BOOL                       Enable


hDevice [in]

A handle to the display device (graphics context).

hVideoProcessor [in]

A handle to the video processor object that was created through a call to the CreateVideoProcessor function.

StreamIndex [in]

The zero-based index of the input stream.

Enable [in]

If TRUE, automatic processing features are enabled. If FALSE, the driver disables any additional video processing that it might be performing.

Return value

This function does not return a value.


By default, the driver might perform certain processing tasks automatically during the video processor bit-block transfer (bitblt). The VideoProcessorSetStreamAutoProcessingMode function enables the application to disable these additional video processing features that the driver may expose.

For example, if the independent software vendor (ISV) provides its own pixel shader for the video processor, it might want to disable the driver's automatic processing.
