Function

CMFormatDescriptionGetExtensions

Returns an immutable dictionary containing all the extensions of a CMFormatDescription.

Declaration

CFDictionaryRef CMFormatDescriptionGetExtensions(CMFormatDescriptionRef desc);

Parameters

desc

CMFormatDescription being interrogated

Return Value

An immutable dictionary containing all the extensions of the CMFormatDescription. May be NULL.

Discussion

If there are no extensions, NULL is returned. Extensions dictionaries are valid property list objects. This means that dictionary keys are all CFStrings, and the values are all either CFNumber, CFString, CFBoolean, CFArray, CFDictionary, CFDate, or CFData. The returned dictionary is not retained by this call, so clients are required to retain it if they need to keep it longer.
