Mmdevice (The Windows Multimedia Device) API is used for audio clients to discover audio endpoint devices, determine their capabilities, and create driver instances for those devices. WASAPI (Windows Audio Stream API) is used to create and manage the audio stream from and to endpoint devices of audio clients. DeviceToplogyAPI directly fetches the topological structure and its functions of hardware devices.

The MMDevice API consists of several interfaces that are defined by Header file Mmdeviceapi.h. The IMMDevice interface contains the generic features of a multimedia device resource and the audio endpoint device is the only type of device resource available with an IMMDevice interface in the current implementation of the MMDevice API for creating a collection of endpoint objects, each of which represents an audio endpoint device in the system. Each endpoint object in the collection supports the IMMDevice interfaces.
