The Connect method connects the pin to another pin. This method implements the IPin::Connect method.
HRESULT Connect( IPin *pReceivePin, const AM_MEDIA_TYPE *pmt );
Pointer to the receiving pin's IPin interface.
Pointer to an AM_MEDIA_TYPE structure that specifies the media type for the connection.
Returns an HRESULT value. Possible values include those in the following table.
|VFW_E_ALREADY_CONNECTED||The pin is already connected.|
|VFW_E_NO_ACCEPTABLE_TYPES||Could not find an acceptable media type.|
|VFW_E_NOT_STOPPED||The filter is active and the pin does not support dynamic reconnection.|
|VFW_E_TYPE_NOT_ACCEPTED||The specified media type is not acceptable.|
The pmt parameter can be NULL. It can also specify a partial media type, with a value of GUID_NULL for the major type, subtype, or format.
In the base class, this method tests whether the pin is already connected and whether the filter is stopped. It delegates the rest of the connection process to the CBasePin::AgreeMediaType method.
