Video profiles provide a simple way to configure the video capture device with a group of settings that are guaranteed to work with a particular capture device and are optimized for your desired capture scenario. There is a set of known video profiles that the system provides for common scenarios, such as capturing high-quality photos during video capture or video conferencing. To get a list of the known video profiles for a given video device, use MediaCapture.FindKnownVideoProfiles. Some hardware vendors may expose other video profiles that you can get by calling MediaCapture.FindAllVideoProfiles. For more information on video profiles, see MediaCaptureVideoProfile.

The value you use for this property determines how the system handles the values for other properties of the MediaCaptureInitializationSettings.

Before using video profiles, you should check the value returned by MediaCapture.IsVideoProfileSupported to make sure that video profiles are supported by the capture device.
