◆ GetDeviceIDFromName()

AkUInt32 __cdecl AK::GetDeviceIDFromName ( wchar_t *  in_szToken )

Finds an audio endpoint that matches the token in the device name or device ID and returns an ID.

This is a helper function that searches in the device ID (as returned by IMMDevice->GetId) and in the property PKEY_Device_FriendlyName. The token parameter is case-sensitive. If you need to do matching on different conditions, use IMMDeviceEnumerator directly and AK::GetDeviceID.

Note
CoInitialize must have been called for the calling thread. See Microsoft's documentation about CoInitialize for more details.
