IMediaObject::SetOutputType method

The SetOutputType method sets the media type on an output stream, or tests whether a media type is acceptable.

Syntax

HRESULT SetOutputType(
  DWORD                dwOutputStreamIndex,
  const DMO_MEDIA_TYPE *pmt,
  DWORD                dwFlags
);

Parameters

dwOutputStreamIndex

Zero-based index of an output stream on the DMO.

pmt

Pointer to a DMO_MEDIA_TYPE structure that specifies the media type.

dwFlags

Bitwise combination of zero or more flags from the DMO_SET_TYPE_FLAGS enumeration.

Return Value

Returns an HRESULT value. Possible values include those in the following table.

Return code Description
DMO_E_INVALIDSTREAMINDEX
Invalid stream index
DMO_E_TYPE_NOT_ACCEPTED
Media type was not accepted
S_FALSE
Media type is not acceptable
S_OK
Media type was set successfully, or is acceptable

Remarks

Call this method to test, set, or clear the media type on an output stream:

  • To test the media type without setting it, use the DMO_SET_TYPEF_TEST_ONLY flag. If the media type is not acceptable, the method returns S_FALSE.
  • To set the media type, set dwFlags to zero. If the media type is not acceptable, the method returns DMO_E_TYPE_NOT_ACCEPTED.
  • To clear the current media type (if any), use the DMO_SET_TYPEF_CLEAR flag and set pmt to NULL. When the method returns, the stream no longer has a media type. The DMO cannot process samples until the application sets a new media type, unless the stream is optional.
The media types that are currently set on other streams can affect whether the media type is acceptable.
