IWMSyncReader::GetMaxOutputSampleSize method

The GetMaxOutputSampleSize method retrieves the maximum sample size for a specified output of the file open in the synchronous reader.

Syntax

HRESULT GetMaxOutputSampleSize(
  DWORD dwOutput,
  DWORD *pcbMax
);

Parameters

dwOutput

DWORD containing the output number for which you want to retrieve the maximum sample size.

pcbMax

Pointer to a DWORD value that receives the maximum sample size, in bytes, for the output specified in dwOutput.

Return value

The method returns an HRESULT. Possible values include, but are not limited to, those in the following table.

Return code Description
S_OK
The method succeeded.
E_INVALIDARG
pcbMax is NULL.

OR

dwOutput specifies an invalid output number.

ASF_E_INVALIDSTATE
No file is opened in the synchronous reader.
NS_E_NOT_CONFIGURED
The specified output is not currently configured for playback.
E_UNEXPECTED
The synchronous reader failed to initialize an internal object.

Remarks

In some scenarios, such as multiple bit rate streaming, the output encompasses several streams. The size returned is the maximum sample size for all of the streams associated with the specified output.

You can retrieve the maximum sample size for a specific stream by using IWMSyncReader::GetMaxStreamSampleSize.
