MediaStreamContainer

A MediaStreamContainer describes a video file format. The most common video file format is AVI.

A list of valid MediaStreamContainer objects can be obtained from ICImagingControl.MediaStreamContainers.

Example

The following code fragment shows how to create a MediaStreamSink to record an AVI file:

' Create the MediaStreamSink.
Dim aviSink As New MediaStreamSink

' Set AVI as the video file format
Dim n As Integer
n = ICImagingControl1.MediaStre.mContainers.FindIndex("AVI")
aviSink.StreamContainer = ICImagingControl1.MediaStreamContainers(n)

' Set DV Video Encoder as the Codec
n = ICImagingControl1.AviCompressors.FindIndex("DV Video Encoder")
aviSink.Codec = ICImagingControl1.AviCompressors(n)

' Set a target file name.
aviSink.FileName = "video.avi"

' Set the sink.
ICImagingControl1.Sink = aviSink

' Start recording.
ICImagingControl1.LiveStart
