IConfigAsfWriter::ConfigureFilterUsingProfileGuid method (dshowasf.h)

[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 It has been superseded by MediaPlayer, IMFMediaEngine, and Audio/Video Capture in Media Foundation.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.]

The ConfigureFilterUsingProfileGuid method sets a predefined system profile on the WM ASF Writer filter. This method is deprecated. Applications should use the IConfigAsfWriter::ConfigureFilterUsingProfile method to set the profile.
