Starts the recording.

function StartRecording: Boolean;

bool __fastcall StartRecording(void)

Function StartRecording() As Boolean


Used to start the recording by using the current video capture device (and audio capture device , if AudioRecording is enabled).

When the HoldRecording parameter is set to "false", the recording starts as soon as the recording graph is built (after a variable number of seconds, depending of the video capture device, audio/video compressors, etc...).

When the HoldRecording parameter is set to "true", the recording graph is built and started in preview mode, and the recording is held until ResumeRecording has been invoked.

When the recording graph is built, the OnRecordingReadyToStart event occurs to let you know that you can invoke ResumeRecording when you want.

See the recording chapter for more information.
