Stop Method (DirectShow)

[The feature associated with this page, DirectShow, is a legacy feature. It has been superseded by MediaPlayer, IMFMediaEngine, and Audio/Video Capture in Media Foundation. Those features have been optimized for Windows 10 and Windows 11. Microsoft strongly recommends that new code use MediaPlayer, IMFMediaEngine and Audio/Video Capture in Media Foundation instead of DirectShow, when possible. Microsoft suggests that existing code that uses the legacy APIs be rewritten to use the new APIs if possible.]


This component is available for use in the Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 operating systems. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions.


The Stop method stops playback.


Return Value

No return value.


If EnableResetOnStop is set to true, calling Stop puts the DVD Navigator, along with the rest of the filter graph, into a stopped state, which means that the next time the user presses the Play button, playback starts at the beginning of the disc. If EnableResetOnStop is set to true, playback resumes where it left off when the user issues the next Play command.
