Summary

Indicates whether the target format is available.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public bool Available {get;} 
Public ReadOnly Property Available() As Boolean 
   Get 
public:  
   property bool Available 
   { 
      bool get() 
   }

Target format availability depends on the media sinks and multiplexers that are registered in your system. Microsoft Media Foundation components vary with the operating system version. Use this property to determine if the required components are installed.
