IAMVideoControl::GetMaxAvailableFrameRate method (strmif.h)

The GetMaxAvailableFrameRate method retrieves the maximum frame rate currently available, based on bus bandwidth usage for connections, such as USB and IEEE 1394, where the maximum frame rate may be limited by bandwidth availability.


HRESULT GetMaxAvailableFrameRate(
  [in]  IPin     *pPin,
  [in]  long     iIndex,
  [in]  SIZE     Dimensions,
  [out] LONGLONG *MaxAvailableFrameRate


[in] pPin

Pointer to the pin to retrieve the maximum frame rate from.

[in] iIndex

Index of the format to query for maximum frame rate. This index corresponds to the order in which formats are enumerated by IAMStreamConfig::GetStreamCaps. The value must range between zero and the number of supported VIDEO_STREAM_CONFIG_CAPS structures returned by IAMStreamConfig::GetNumberOfCapabilities) minus one.

[in] Dimensions

Frame image size (width and height) in pixels.

[out] MaxAvailableFrameRate

Pointer to the maximum available frame rate. The frame rate is expressed as frame duration in 100-nanosecond units.

Return value

Returns an HRESULT value that depends on the implementation of the interface.
