Public Property CompressorHandler As Integer
public int CompressorHandler { get; set; }

Property Value

An integer number containing the compressor handler.


The compressor handler is tightly bounded with the FOURCC code. If you interpret the FOURCC value as a 4-byte value rather than a 4-character string, you will get the compressor handler.

Most wide used compressor handler constants are presented as static members of the AviCompressor class. Also, this class enables you to enumerate all installed compressors, get information about the compressor, etc.


You should set this value before you open the writer object. You cannot change it when the writer is already opened!
