Microsoft DirectX 9.0


This topic applies to Windows XP only.

The VideoRendererActive property sets or retrieves the currently active video renderer.


objMSVidCtl.VideoRendererActive As MSVidVideoRenderer


This property takes no parameters.

Error Codes

If the property fails, an error is raised and Err.Number is set to a value other than zero.

Return Values

Returns an MSVidVideoRenderer object.


Currently the only supported video renderer is the Video Mixing Renderer Filter (VMR). The VMR is used by default, so it is not necessary to set the property. Applications can retrieve this property to set properties on the VMR, such as the clipping rectangle or the static bitmap.

This property is read/write.
