Check streaming media

Hi,

I want to check streaming media URL's (like MMS and RTSP) if these are still
available and if so, the average bandwidth.

Does anybody have ideas for this?

Thx,

Dennieku,

This isn't exactly a small request. You basically have to write
handlers for those URL's, and then actually download them and measure the
bandwidth.

You ^might^ be able to get away with this by using the COM
infrastructure for asynchronous pluggable protocols. Basically, you would
call BindToStorage on the IMoniker interface, requesting an IStream
interface, from which you then read.

Hope this helps.
