Microsoft DirectX 9.0


The AgreeMediaType method searches for a media type to make a pin connection.


virtual HRESULT AgreeMediaType(
    IPin *pReceivePin,
    const CMediaType *pmt



Pointer to the receiving pin's IPin interface.


Pointer to a CMediaType object that specifies a media type, or NULL.

Return Value

Returns an HRESULT value. Possible values include those in the following table.

Value Description
S_OK Success.
VFW_E_NO_ACCEPTABLE_TYPES No acceptable media type was found.


If the pmt parameter is non-NULL and fully specifies a media type, this method attempts a connection using that media type. If the attempt fails, the method returns an error.

If the pmt parameter is NULL or specifies a partial media type, this method tries media types in the following order:

  1. The receiving pin's preferred media types.
  2. This pin's preferred media types.

Preferred media types are enumerated with the CBasePin::EnumMediaTypes method, and the resulting enumerator is passed to the CBasePin::TryMediaTypes method.
