Value Description
S_FALSE Skipped past the end of the sequence.
S_OK Success.
VFW_E_ENUM_OUT_OF_SYNC The graph has changed and is now inconsistent with the enumerator.


If the filter graph changes (for example, the application removes a filter), the enumerator is no longer be consistent with the graph, and the method returns VFW_E_ENUM_OUT_OF_SYNC. Discard any data obtained from previous calls to the enumerator, because it might be invalid. Update the enumerator by calling the IEnumFilters::Reset method. You can then call the Skip method safely.
