IWMStreamConfig::SetBitrate method

The SetBitrate method specifies the bit rate for the stream.


HRESULT SetBitrate(
  DWORD pdwBitrate



DWORD containing the bit rate, in bits per second.

Return value

This method always returns S_OK.


The bit rate is the number of bits per second given to the stream in the ASF file, not including any overhead. For compressed bit streams, such as audio or video, a higher bit rate gives higher quality.

The new value will not take effect in the profile until you call IWMProfile::ReconfigStream.
