Hi, I would like to read and playback an AVI video data that it is inside a huge general purpose data file that contains among others sound & graphics data. Is that possible to have a direct access to a specific offset inside the data that points to that AVI stream and play it with MCI without of course the need of extracting to a temp file? I found that mmioOpen of the MCI command set can do that. Is there any sample or example that i can play with ? Any other recommendations ? Regards,

I wanted to use it, but never used it myself but i think name pipes are what you are looking for

The named pipe can be accessed much like a file. Win32 SDK functions such as CreateFile, ReadFile, WriteFile and CloseHandle can be used to open, read from, write to, and close a pipe. C library functions such as fopen, fread, fwrite, and fclose can also be used, unlike Windows Sockets, which does not implement network use of standard file i/o operations. There is no command line interface like Unix.
