Enumeration of video capture devices from MFEnumDeviceSources API RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    If a microsoft surface device has multiple cameras, then how does the MFEnumDeviceSources API report those devices to the calling application ?

    Ex. There is 1 camera on the Front and 3 cameras on the rear. Does the multi-cam device uses all 3 rear cameras simultaneously to produce a single image and then send it to media frameworks, then it would probably be reported as a single camera. If this is not the case, will the API report 3 separate rear cameras ? 

    Please clarify how the cameras are reported to Windows and then to media foundation. How does the API return the list to the calling application?

    If this is not the right forum for this query, please suggest the appropriate forum.
