The get_BufferingTime method retrieves the amount of time that the plug-in buffers data before sending it along the data path.


  HRESULT get_BufferingTime(
  long*  pVal



[out] Pointer to a long containing the amount of buffering time, in .01 nanosecond units.

Return Values

If the method succeeds, it returns S_OK. If it fails, it returns an HRESULT error code.


The maximum buffering time is 60 seconds.
