hi i am using IGraphBuilder Interface in directshow to build a media player. i am question about this hr = pGraph->RenderFile(L"http://example.microsoft.com/Example.avi", 0); does it going to download the whole .avi file before play? thanks mush EDIT: Please pick a more useful subject line. "hi, i need a pro to answer this question thanks" gives no description of the question and is likely to be ignored by the very people you want to get help from!

No, I imagine it'll use an internet streaming object as the source for the graph. Try it out in GraphEdit and see what it does.
