This method retrieves the current sample's start and end times. If the sample is updating, this method returns the times after the update completes.
HRESULT GetSampleTimes( STREAM_TIME* pStartTime, STREAM_TIME* pEndTime, STREAM_TIME* pCurrentTime );
[out] Pointer to a STREAM_TIME value that will contain the sample's start time.
[out] Pointer to a STREAM_TIME value that will contain the sample's end time.
[out] Pointer to a STREAM_TIME value that will contain the media stream's current media time.
Returns S_OK if successful or E_POINTER if one of the parameters is invalid.
For streams that have a clock, the start and end times will be relative to the stream's current time. If the stream does not have a clock, the times are media-relative and the current time will be zero.
The pCurrentTime parameter enables you to conveniently track the media stream's current time, so you do not have to call IMultiMediaStream::GetTime. Unlike GetTime, however, this method returns S_OK if the stream does not have a clock; GetTime returns S_FALSE. The value assigned to pCurrentTime is the same as the value produced by the following code fragment.
pSample->GetMediaStream(&pMediaStream); pMediaStream->GetMultiMediaStream(&pMultiMediaStream); pMediaStream->Release(); pMultiMediaStream->GetTime(&pCurrentTime); pMultiMediaStream->Release();
DirectShow applications and DirectShow filters have different include file and link library requirements. See Setting Up the Build Environment for more information.
OS Versions: Windows CE 2.12 and later. Version 2.12 requires DXPAK 1.0 or later.
