IWMSBroadcastPublishingPoint::get_BufferSetting

The get_BufferSetting method retrieves a member of the WMS_BUFFER_SETTING enumeration type that indicates the amount of buffering that is done on a broadcast sink.

Syntax

  HRESULT get_BufferSetting(
  
  WMS_BUFFER_SETTING*
  
  pVal
  
  );

Parameters

pVal

[out] Member of the WMS_BUFFER_SETTING enumeration type that indicates the amount of buffering that is done on a broadcast sink. This must be one of the following values.

Value Description
WMS_BUFFER_SETTING_UNSPECIFIED Reserved for future use.
WMS_BUFFER_SETTING_MINIMIZE_STARTUP_LATENCY Instructs the server to buffer data ahead of the client connection so that, when the client connects, the server can send data to it more quickly.
WMS_BUFFER_SETTING_PROPOGATION_LATENCY Minimizes the amount of data that the server buffers before streaming.

Return Values

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

Return code Number Description
E_POINTER 0x80004003 pVal is a NULL pointer argument.
NS_E_PUBLISHING_POINT_REMOVED 0xC00D145AL The publishing point has already been removed.

Remarks

The default value is WMS_BUFFER_SETTING_MINIMIZE_STARTUP_LATENCY.
