The GetMediaType method retrieves the media type, if the media type differs from the previous sample.
HRESULT GetMediaType( AM_MEDIA_TYPE **ppMediaType );
Address of a variable that receives a pointer to an AM_MEDIA_TYPE structure. If the media type has not changed from the previous sample, *ppMediaType is set to NULL.
Returns an HRESULT value. Possible values include those shown in the following table.
|S_FALSE||The media type has not changed from the previous sample.|
This method enables a filter to make limited changes to the media type, such as changing the palette. To make a significant change to the media type, the pins might need to reconnect and renegotiate the media type.
If the method returns S_OK, the caller must free the memory for the media type, including the format block. You can use the DeleteMediaType function in the DirectShow base class library.
