The DirectX SDK version 8.1 has a utility called graphedt.exe that allows a user to build DirectShow filter graphs that allow users to play various video content.
I am interested in adding the capability to play a file from a URL on another server. Graphedt.exe allows me to do this successfully if I select the menu item.
File | Render URL
This builds a graph that successfully plays a URL based file. When I try and build the graph from scratch using the "File Source URL" Direct Show filter, I get the error 0x80004002 (No such interface supported). I have checked and the successful graph uses the same filter but won't let me manually build the graph. Since I can't manually build the graph, I can't incorporate this functionality into my own application.
Does anyone have any experience with this?
I'm not a programmer and that sounds way deep but I am still a good researcher. I'll look around and see what I can find. If you or any other member knows or finds the solution before me, please post up here.
