The IDsCaptureDriverBuffer::GetStatusmethod retrieves the current status of the sound buffer.

Address of a variable to contain the status of the sound buffer. The status can be a combination of the following flags:
Value Description

DSBSTATUS_LOOPING The buffer is being looped. If this value is not set, the buffer will stop when it reaches the end of the sound data. Note that if this value is set, the buffer must also be playing.
DSBSTATUS_PLAYING The buffer is playing. If this value is not set, the buffer is stopped.
