pointer to an interface

IltmmMediaTypeDisp ** ppMediaType;

pointer to a pointer

Gets a copy of the media type accepted by the sample target object.




Pointer to an IltmmSampleTarget interface that references the sample target object for which to get the accepted media type.


Pointer to a variable that is updated with an IltmmMediaTypeDisp pointer. The IltmmMediaTypeDisp interface referenced by this pointer contains information on the accepted media type of the sample target.



The function was successful.

If the function succeeds, the caller must free the returned MediaType by calling the interface's Release function.

If the function succeeds, the caller must free the interface referenced by the MediaType parameter by calling the interface's Release function.

Multimedia objects negotiate the type of media data they will exchange. The accepted media type set by a sample target object indicates the type of media data that object can accept. Once a sample target object is associated with or added to a convert object for example, these two objects decide on the media type they will exchange. This is the connected media type. The connected media type can be obtained using the IltmmSampleTarget::GetConnectedMediaType.
