SetInputMediaTyp () failed and returns with error 'MF_E_INVALIDMEDIATYPE'

What I have tried:

This code works fine in windows 7 and failed in windows 10.

SetInputMediaType() failed and returns MF_E_INVALIDMEDIATYPE?

In case of VBR ('eAVEncCommonRateControlMode_Quality'), MF_MT_AVG_BITRATE' value is required?

The error message is clear that there is something not properly in configured in IMFSinkWriter.

You better read the Microsoft documentation about
encoding H.264. Take a deeper dive into the Video Type GUIDs.

Often arent all conversions supported. So try some variations.
