MediaFoundation and setting webcam properties RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am developing an application to capture from webcams. Everything works fine, except that i can not find a way to control camera properties like gain or white balance using Media Foundation. Does anyone know the correct way to do this?

  • The media source used for capture devices can be queried for IKsControl.  You might find the documentation on video property sets and audio property sets useful.  Not all devices will support all properties, and some will support additional private properties.

  • In DirectShow I was able to get ISpecifyPropertyPages from the IBaseFilter and then later pass to an OleCreatePropertyFrame.
    I haven't tried yet, but is this possible in Media Foundation?
