SetAcceptedMediaType Method

Summary

Sets the media type of the samples accepted by the object.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public void SetAcceptedMediaType( 
   MediaType MediaType 
) 
Public Sub SetAcceptedMediaType( _ 
   ByVal MediaType As MediaType _ 
)  
public: 
void SetAcceptedMediaType(  
   MediaType^ MediaType 
)  

Parameters

MediaType
A MediaSample object that specifies the media type of the samples accepted by the sample target object.

Remarks

Sets the media type of the samples accepted by the object. Define the media type of the sample target object before adding the target object to any other multimedia object. A partially defined media type is acceptable. By default, the target object will accept any media type. 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.
