In some situaitions, the filter graph may be torn down and rebuilt during play. For example, this can happen if the monitor resolution is changed or the screen saver starts. The EnableResetOnStop property specifies whether the Video Control should resume playback where it was interrupted, or should restart at the beginning of the source.

By default, it resumes from the point where playback was interruptes. If newVal is VARIANT_TRUE, however, the Video Control will issue a seek command back to time zero. Note that setting this parameter to VARIANT_TRUE does not guarantee that the stream can be seeked. The seek command might fail, depending on the source.
