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

Return code Description
The method succeeded.
Invalid stream number. Applies to the MFT_MESSAGE_NOTIFY_END_OF_STREAM message.
The media type is not set on one or more streams.


Each message type has a different requirement for calling order, see the MFT_MESSAGE_TYPE enumeration for more details.

The MFT might ignore certain message types. If so, the method returns S_OK. An error code indicates that the transform handles this message type but was unable to process the message in this instance.

If MFT_UNIQUE_METHOD_NAMES is defined before including mftransform.h, this method is renamed MFTProcessMessage. See Creating Hybrid DMO/MFT Objects.
