BitCount Property

Summary

This property is updated with the video bit count for the video format.

Syntax

C#
VB
C++
public int BitCount {get;} 
Public ReadOnly Property BitCount As Integer 
public: 
property int BitCount { 
   int get(); 
} 

Property Value

A value that represents the video bit count

Remarks

This property is updated with the video bit count for the video format. The CaptureCtrl.VideoCaptureFormats property is updated with a VideoFormats object that contains all of the video formats available for the current capture device.

The VideoFormats indexer obtains a VideoFormat object for each of the supported video formats. The VideoFormat properties of each VideoFormat object, obtained using the VideoFormats indexer, are updated with information about that specific video format. This information includes the following information:
