Syntax
C#

public SourceFormatType SourceFormat { get; } 
Public ReadOnly Property SourceFormat As SourceFormatType 
public: 
property SourceFormatType SourceFormat { 
   SourceFormatType get(); 
} 

Property Value

A SourceFormatType value representing the media source file format.

Remarks

The value is one of the SourceFormatType enumerations. This property is updated automatically when the SourceFile property is set. The descriptive name for the format is found in the SourceFormatName property. The current source media file is found in the SourceFile property. This is the file that the MediaInfo object gets information for. The SourceFile property must be set before retrieving information from any of the other MediaInfo properties. Call the ResetSource method to release the source file when it is no longer needed.
