MF_ACTIVATE_CUSTOM_VIDEO_PRESENTER_ACTIVATE attribute

Specifies an activation object that creates a custom video presenter for the enhanced video renderer (EVR) media sink.

Data type

IUnknown*

Remarks

If you are creating the EVR through an activation object, you can use this attribute to set a custom video presenter on the EVR. Use this attribute as follows:

  1. Call the MFCreateVideoRendererActivate function to create an activation object for the EVR. The function returns a pointer to the IMFActivate interface.
  2. Set this attribute on the IMFActivate pointer by calling IMFAttributes::SetUnknown. The value of the attribute is a pointer to an activation object implemented by the caller. The caller's activation object must expose the IMFActivate interface.

If you set this attribute, the EVR calls IMFActivate::ActivateObject to create the custom video presenter. The video presenter must expose the IMFVideoPresenter interface.

The GUID constant for this attribute is exported from mfuuid.lib.
