IMFPMediaPlayerCallback::OnMediaPlayerEvent method (mfplay.h)

Important  Deprecated. This API may be removed from future releases of Windows. Applications should use the Media Session for playback.
 

Called by the MFPlay player object to notify the application of a playback event.

Syntax

void OnMediaPlayerEvent(
  MFP_EVENT_HEADER *pEventHeader
);

Parameters

pEventHeader

Pointer to an MFP_EVENT_HEADER structure that contains information about the event.

Return value

None

Remarks

The specific type of playback event is given in the eEventType member of the MFP_EVENT_HEADER structure. This structure contains information that is common to all of the event types. Some event types use extended structures. A set of macros is defined for casting the pEventHeader pointer to the correct structure type. For more information, see MFP_EVENT_TYPE.

It is safe to call IMFPMediaPlayer and IMFPMediaItem methods inside the OnMediaPlayer method. MFPlay is guaranteed not to reenter the OnMediaPlayer method. That is, calls to OnMediaPlayer are serialized, and the method will not be invoked again from inside OnMediaPlayer.

Examples

The following code shows how to cast the pEventHeader parameter to the correct structure type and pass the structure pointer to a handler function. The handler functions are declared at the start of the example. The application would need to provide implementations for these functions. Note that you do not have to handle every event. For example, if your application never calls IMFPMediaPlayer::SetRate, you would not need to handle the MFP_EVENT_TYPE_RATE_SET event. In that case, simply omit MFP_EVENT_TYPE_RATE_SET from the switch statement.
