EstimateOutputBitRate Method

Summary

Gets the estimated conversion output bit rate, in bits per second.

Syntax

C#
VB
C++
public virtual int EstimateOutputBitRate() 
Public Overridable Function EstimateOutputBitRate() As Integer 
public: 
virtual int EstimateOutputBitRate();  

Return Value

estimated conversion output bit rate, in bits per second.

Remarks

The retrieved bit rate depends on the state of the convert object. If the object is in the running state, the retrieved bit rate is related to the actual number of bytes written. If the object is not running, the retrieved bit rate is a theoretical value dependent on the conversion settings and the chosen encoding settings.
