Grabber::getGraphStartReferenceTime Method

Grabber::getGraphStartReferenceTime Method

This method retrieves the reference time at which the image stream (the filter graph) was started.
bool getGraphStartReferenceTime(REFERENCE_TIME& GraphStart) const;
Parameter Description

Specifies a REFERENCE_TIME variable that will receive the reference time.

Return value:

true on success, false otherwise.


The returned value in GraphStart 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).

If no reference clock is available, this method fails.
