Grabber::getCurReferenceTime Method

Grabber::getCurReferenceTime Method

Retrieves the current reference time.
bool getCurReferenceTime(REFERENCE_TIME& RTime) const;
Return value:

true on success, false otherwise.


The returned value in RTime specifies the time in 100 nanosecond (or 1/10000 millisecond) resolution. The resolution depends on the reference clock used internally by DirectShow (but it is mostly equivalent to QueryPerformanceCounter).

This method fails, if no reference clock is available.
