The IMediaSource interface is implemented by the MediaStreamSource runtime class and can also be implemented by other runtime classes.

Runtime classes that implement this interface must also implement the IMFGetService interface and must support returning an IMFMediaSource or an IMFMediaSourceExtension interface when IMFGetService.GetService method is invoked for the MF_MEDIASOURCE_SERVICE service.
