IMFVirtualCamera interface (mfvirtualcamera.h)

Represents a virtual camera that can be plugged into the Media Foundation frame server pipeline. This allows developers to create a user-mode software component that can be discovered and used by apps as if it was a hardware capture device.

Inheritance

The IMFVirtualCamera interface inherits from the IMFAttributes interface.

IMFVirtualCamera::SendCameraProperty

Remarks

Create an instance of IMFVirtualCamera by calling MFCreateVirtualCamera. When this interface is returned from MFCreateVirtualCamera for the first time, the interface represents a set of configuration options. The caller is responsible for configuring the different settings on the virtual camera before starting the camera. Calling the IMFVirtualCamera::Start method allows the camera to be discoverable and activatable on the device.
