Handle of the waveform-audio output device.
Address of a variable to be filled with the current playback rate. The
playback rate setting is a multiplier indicating the current change in playback rate
from the original authored setting. The playback rate multiplier must be a
The rate is specified as a fixed-point value. The high-order word of the
variable contains the signed integer part of the number, and the low-order word
contains the fractional part. A value of 0x8000 in the low-order word represents
one-half, and 0x4000 represents one-quarter. For example, the value 0x00010000
specifies a multiplier of 1.0 (no playback rate change), and a value of
0x000F8000 specifies a multiplier of 15.5.
Returns MMSYSERR_NOERROR if successful or an error otherwise. Possible error
values include the following:
||Specified device handle is invalid.
||No device driver is present.
||Unable to allocate or lock memory.
||Function isn't supported.
Changing the playback rate does not change the sample rate but does change the
playback time. Not all devices support playback rate changes. To determine
whether a device supports playback rate changes, use the WAVECAPS_PLAYBACKRATE
flag to test the dwSupport
