MediaStreamContainer::getAvailableMediaStreamContainers Method

Returns a list of available container types.
static tMediaStreamContainerListPtr    getAvailableMediaStreamContainers();
Return Value:

The list may be empty ( size() == 0 ) when no containers were found. Otherwise, it contains the available containers that are available on the system.


The following example shows how to retrieve the list of available media stream containers and displays their names and GUIDs in a list box:

CListBox* pContainerList = (CListBox*)GetDlgItem( IDC_CONTAINERS );
// Get a list of the available media stream containers.
tMediaStreamContainerListPtr pList =
// Display them in a list box.
for( int i = 0; i < int(pList->size()); ++i )
    tMediaStreamContainerPtr pContainer = pList->at( i );
    std::wstring item;
    item += pContainer->getDescriptionW() + L" ";
    item += GUIDToWString( pContainer->getMediaStreamContainerID() );
    pContainerList->AddString( item.c_str() );
