Below is a collection of four character codes (TFourCC) used in S60 3rd Edition devices.

TFourCC is a class that holds a four character code, representing a supported (audio) data encoding type. A four character code is packed into a single TUint32. FourCC codes are used to identify codecs when initializing an instance of one of the audio classes (for example, CMdaAudioOutputStream, CMdaAudioOutputStream, or CMMFDevSound).

Note that the list of supported codecs may vary between devices.


// 8-bit PCM
const TUint32 KMMFFourCCCodePCM8     = 0x38502020; //  (' ',' ','P','8')

// 8-bit Unsigned PCM
