GetConnectedMediaType Method

Summary

Gets a copy of the connected media type.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public MediaType GetConnectedMediaType() 
Public Function GetConnectedMediaType() As MediaType 
public: 
MediaType^ GetConnectedMediaType();  

Return Value

A MediaType object that represents the actual media type of the samples that will be delivered.

Remarks

The returned value represents the actual media type of the samples that will be delivered. For more information on accepted versus connected media types, refer to GetAcceptedMediaType method. If the method fails, an error is raised. For more information, refer to the Error Codes.
