IWMWriterNetworkSink::GetHostURL method

The GetHostURL method retrieves the URL from which the stream is broadcast. Clients will access the stream from this URL.

Syntax

HRESULT GetHostURL(
  WCHAR *pwszURL,
  DWORD *pcchURL
);

Parameters

pwszURL

Pointer to buffer that receives a string containing the URL. To retrieve the length of the string, set this parameter to NULL.

pcchURL

On input, pointer to the size of pwszURL, in characters. On output, this parameter receives the length of the URL in characters, including the terminating null character.

Return value

The method returns an HRESULT. Possible values include, but are not limited to, the values shown in the following table.

Return code Description

Remarks

You should make two calls to GetHostURL. On the first call, pass NULL as pwszURL. On return, the value pointed to by pcchURL is set to the number of characters, including the terminating null character, required to hold the URL. Then you can allocate the required amount of memory for the string and pass a pointer to it as pwszURL on the second call.
