ICDecompressOpen macro

The ICDecompressOpen macro opens a decompressor that is compatible with the specified formats.

Syntax

void ICDecompressOpen(
   fccType,
   fccHandler,
   lpbiIn,
   lpbiOut
);

Parameters

fccType

Four-character code indicating the type of compressor to open. For video streams, the value of this parameter is "VIDC" or ICTYPE_VIDEO.

fccHandler

Four-character code indicating the preferred stream handler to use. Typically, this information is stored in the stream header in an AVI file.

lpbiIn

Pointer to a structure defining the input format. A decompressor handle is not returned unless it can decompress this format. For bitmaps, this parameter refers to a BITMAPINFOHEADER structure.

lpbiOut

Pointer to a structure defining an optional decompression format. You can also specify zero to use the default output format associated with the input format.

If this parameter is nonzero, a compressor handle is not returned unless it can create this output format. For bitmaps, this parameter refers to a BITMAPINFOHEADER structure.

Return Value

None

Remarks
