Error notification from within custom media source - Best Practice? RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi there,


    i´m currently facing a situation where i want to deliver errors/error information back from a custom media source to the media session.

     i tried queuing an MEError event on the media source´s event queue, but these are apparently not passed no to the media session. For now i just implement an additional interface in my media source and query for it directly within my player to receive error event notification. But it seems more like some kinda hack to me, therefore i´d like to ask if there are any other ways to deliver error notifciations from media sources back to e.g. the media session. Are there any best practices for such a situation?

    best regards from austria

  • Are you trying to queue the errors in-band or out-of-band?

  • hi nobby,


    as i use the event queue, i think its out-of-band (at least i though all events sent using IMFMediaEventGenerator are out-of-band).

    isn´t something like this possible with out-of-band events?
