Return Values

Returns an HRESULTvalue.


To play a video within another application or document, the application might want to use its own palette. It can ask that the video use the current foreground palette rather than its own as the background palette by setting this flag to –1. If this is set to 0, the window will install and realize its own preferred palette. Asking the window to use a different palette will cause severe performance penalties.
